Is there ever a night I'm not tired? This week I feel like I'm running on empty. I could put it down to numerous things - college, kids, housework, training, shopping, (the grocery kind I'm afraid), and just generally rushing around. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy being busy, enjoy the hustle and bustle. Being … Continue reading To sleep perchance to dream….
Early one tonight...because I'm cream crackered! Had a really long day yesterday, superbly finished off by a gruelling 3 hour musical that made my eyes bleed and ears seep brain fluid. Early start this morning for training (would you look at me bragging! but in fairness I am awesome!). So the bed is calling me...wooing … Continue reading The Mighty Pen
Right. This is going to be a long one so get comfy...might need to get the slippers on and the tea made before you go any further. I've been thinking. Thinking a lot. Had a weekend off from writing to visit the old stomping ground and catch up with old friends (we might be getting … Continue reading The love child of King, Rowling and Keyes.
Got to tidying the desk in the bedroom today. Have been writing at the kitchen table for a while now, mainly because of the heat and glow of the stove. Being in the right place is important for me. I know I should be able to write anywhere, and if I get ideas or need … Continue reading Lining up the Stars
Tonight I've hit a brick wall. Been staring at the screen for over two hours now and getting words out is like pushing stone through a sieve. Have been working on this chapter for over a week and it's been coming together well...until tonight that is. Around every corner of the mountain road I'm roaming … Continue reading Brick Wall
Damn it all to hell! Sometimes I wish great books hadn't been written. Why couldn't the author have just stopped, ran out of ideas, gave up the writing dream and resigned herself to a life serving hamburgers and cleaning toilets in Macky D's. Like Jo Baker for example. Who does she think she is? Writing … Continue reading Damn “Longbourn”!!!
Quick one tonight....Tuesday is Revenge night (don't judge me!). The one programme I religiously tune in to every week, have done since it started. Fecking love it....far fetched, gritty in a Dallas come Dynasty way, fecking money and luxury spilling outa peoples pores, pure utter escapism, completely unrealistic...and brilliant! Jesus, but I do be gripping … Continue reading Revenge & Books
Sometimes the day is just gone. Seems like you put your feet on the floor and next thing you know its time to put them back under the duvet. Today has been one of those days. I've been up 16 hours as I write this and I don't know where it's gone. No, actually, that's … Continue reading Sometimes…
Now, let me start this by saying that I have never been a fan of running. Like golf, I have always thought that it was a cruel and evil way to ruin a perfectly good walk. But over the past few months my view on this has changed (on running, not on golf....golf is, and … Continue reading Running
