Elliot came out to play – Nano day 14

On Sunday, while I was in the coffee-shop at one of our ‘during the day’ meets, Elliot, a character from one of my big novel serials, Darkness, decided that enough was enough – if I was having a crisis of confidence about the rest of my writing, that he’d fill in the gaps.   That was on the 8th, and in the last almost week (with a day off for my birthday on Thursday) and I’ve written 20k.  Being fair, Glass Block, the book that started it all, was originally written in 2003 (which means, technically, I’m cheating).  I’m quite happily writing away now.

There’s a big announcement coming in the next few weeks too – so watch this space 😉

Just a quick one this week, as I have had a positive LFT for covid this morning. Lft 2 pink lines #covidtest #UK What this means in all practical terms is I'm more grateful than ever for my vaccines and, in part due to something my partner said this week, I've pitched...

A 2022 plan in the making… #mondayblogs #backlist #kailarks #rungirlrun

So I did my retrospective. And I don't do resolutions, mostly because if I did, I'd get into even more trouble than I'm in already. But, I do sorta, do plans for the year ahead.I've split them into personal and professional, then split appropriately from there. That...
