Don’t mention the C word!!

I figure it’s time for a mid-month update on life, the universe and a few other bits and bobs.

Nano. Hmmm, not doing so well this year. To be fair, it was a last minute decision (although it was last year too), and I’ve gone into it with different intentions. Last year I had the first draft of a novel to write. This year I’m writing lots of different stories. I’ve also had lots of … just stuff, going on. Nothing major in itself but it all adds up; new puppy (aka third child), 12 year old’s birthday, 8 year old’s grouchiness that it’s not their birthday, tortoises to hibernateย  (a first for me – they’ve done it before!) and just stuff, stuff, stuff! And don’t even mention the C word!

Ok, ok – I hear you, quit whingeing and get on with it. (I am, really – I’m fishing and cutting bait as we speak ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

I realised that last year’s method of putting words to screen wasn’t working this time. Because I’ve been working on different stories I’ve needed to fiddle around with pen and paper to allow my mind to roam properly. Now I’ve accepted that, things are coming along.

I’ve got at least four stories in various stages, have had one accepted for an anthology, and… oh yeah, a Christmas story in My Weekly ๐Ÿ™‚
