Procrastination and Progress

Well, I just looked at the date of my last entry and wondered if I could procrastinate a bit longer and actually go a full year without making a post. Not the greatest idea I’ve ever had. My lone follower probably thinks I died months ago. In my defence, I have been working very hard on Yantsu and I have news. It’s all done and out there in Kindle format. It will be available in paperback in the next few […]

Falling off the Wagon and an OMG Moment

I’m drinking again. No, I don’t mean alcohol, I mean coffee. Right now, there’s a mug of steaming black stuff squatting on my desk like an insect ready to leap up and grab my face. And it’s my third one today. To think, I managed two whole days without one. Yeah, okay, I know that’s no big deal, but there’s more to it than that. I decided to give up coffee and chocolate three weeks prior to my last karate […]

Happy New Year

May 2011 be a good one for you, whatever your plans. I’m not doing the whole resolution thing this year because just thinking about it dooms me to failure within days. I spend so much time obsessing about whether or not I’m reaching my goals that I don’t actually do anything. Anyway, the year is off to a good start so far. The lizard is finished so all I need to do now is get the e-zine written up. That […]

Soggy Paper and Other Fun

Well, yet again my writing in general, and Yantsu in particular, is taking a back seat for a while. That doesn’t mean it’s being ignored completely though. I am a woman, I can multi-task. Well, most of the time, anyway. I’m having to divide my time into neat little blocks so I can keep up with everything and Yantsu has been allocated a couple of hours a day. The screenplay gets about an hour in bed at night and the […]

If it’s Not Pigs it’s Freaks!

What else can you call fully grown, straw Stetson wearing, toy (I hope) gun toting, bellowing adults running down the street leaving a trail of crosses made from breadcrumbs on the pavement? Well, I think the crosses were made from breadcrumbs. I decided that joining the ranks of the curtain twitchers was the safest bet so I only guessed at the nature of the white substance they were sprinkling all over the place. After all, there was a whole herd […]

Marauding Pigs and Rampant Sports Bras

Honestly, such is my life that nothing remotely interesting happens for weeks and then I have two ‘incidents’ in the space of as many hours. First our garden was taken over by enormous fire-breathing devils pigs and then my sports bra savagely attacked me and held me hostage. Seriously, I almost had to go to the neighbour for help – and I don’t mean with the pigs! Now, about those pigs. They were huge black monsters with red eyes and […]

Blogger’s Block…

Does blogger’s block even exist? According to my spell checker blogger doesn’t exist so I guess that would be a no. Anyway, that’s not what’s kept me away from here. Though the 8 attempted posts that are sitting in my drafts folder might suggest otherwise. The truth is I’ve been busy on a crazy project that I’ve been wanting to do for ages but haven’t had the space. Well, it’s not really my dream project but it’s a start. The […]

Tentatively Back

Okay, I know, it’s been forever since I posted on here but I’ve fought my way through the cobwebs, dusted off the password and here I am. I’m not promising to stick around though because, last time I did that, life pulled the rug out from under me and I never managed to get back to the blog. The main reason for my absence has been way too much going on at work,  and the sad demise of my precious […]

And a Wonderful Night Was Had by All…

Okay, it wasn’t. Not by me anyway. I spent the entire night in A&E waiting for someone to be admitted to hospital. Not just anyone – the person I actually accompanied in the ambulance. Anyway, we arrived at the hospital at around midnight, he was finally taken to the ward at 4am and I managed to get the 6:30 bus home. Well, when I say home what I really mean is into town. Then I had to wait 45 minutes […]

Okay, I have an ulterior motive but more about that in a second. I have decided to give away the ebook version of my novel, Sanchin, for one week only. To grab your copy just go along to Sanchin on Smashwords, add it to your basket, and use […]
