Non-fiction, sequels and voice-over…

What?  Three months since I last blogged?  No way… that’s appalling!  Well, what can I say in my defense other than the last few months have whizzed by so quickly, what with Christmas and all, and I’ve lots going on, and… and… actually, that’s not even an excuse, is it?  We’re all very busy.  Sigh.  I’m very, very sorry… It’s nearly February already, how did this happen?   Continue reading “Non-fiction, sequels and voice-over…”

Why I Love Being an Indie Author…

I can’t quite believe it’s October already but, although sad to see the Summer go, I must say I’m starting to love Autumn the older I get.   I think it’s the colours and sunshine, it’s so pretty.   I find writing in Autumn and Winter easier too as there are less distractions, such as sitting in the sunny garden with loved ones, BBQs,  holidays… Actually, most things distract me easily from writing and I have so many mega deadlines to meet.  Hence the lack of blog posts these last few weeks.  Or months.  Oh, it is actually months… sorry!

Marmaris in a weekend? Sure…!

A 1,700+ mile flight, a 1+ hour transfer each way… is it possible to go for just a weekend to Marmaris, Turkey?  Absolutely! Continue reading “Marmaris in a weekend? Sure…!”

Writing, Pigeons and the Fatty Fudge…

I can’t believe it’s June already and we’re half way through 2016.  In fact, I do believe it, as my Dad sends us regular messages similar to: ‘this time in 8 months it will be Christmas Day’, ‘this time in 7 months it will be Christmas Eve’, etc etc… but still, it’s whizzing past.   Continue reading “Writing, Pigeons and the Fatty Fudge…”

Hangin’ with the Vamps, cos I’m down with the kids…

Yes, I’m middle-aged.  I often need a nap in the afternoon, I have a lot of grey hairs (more than home hair-colouring can fix…), I forget where I put the hand towel when I come out of the bathroom and then realise it’s wrapped around my head, I lose my sunglasses then realise I’m wearing them, I get excited about ordering seeds for the garden each year… and don’t even start on what happens if I sneeze suddenly. Continue reading “Hangin’ with the Vamps, cos I’m down with the kids…”

March 2016 news…

Well, firstly, my promise to publish a blog post every week has gone a bit off target.  Ok, not a bit, a lot.  Why?  Well, actually, I don’t even have a really good excuse, it’s just that the start of this year has flown by and I’ve had lots of little things going on that have all merged together to form a big thing.

My favourite books on ‘writing’…

I find it really difficult to get motivated to write on days like today.  It’s a grey, mild, January, Sunday evening and my brain doesn’t want to come out to play.  I took it out to the cinema this afternoon, so you’d think it would be a bit grateful and meet me half way. But no… it’s decided to stay full of cotton wool.  So, I’m going to read about writing instead as at least that’s moving forward, albeit not in quite the direction I should be if  I’m going to keep on schedule to get book number 3 finished (well, started… oops).
