It’s the first Wednesday of the month, which means it’s time to share our hopes, dreams and fears with the Insecure Writers Support Group, the brainchild of Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh, and this month’s hosts are; Gwen Gardner, Doreen McGettigan, Tyrean Martinson, Chemist Ken, and Cathrina Constantiner!
Do stop by and say hello to them!
Today feels like a bit of a crazy day. And where I should be doing something sensible, instead I’m grabbing five minutes to tell you about it.
This morning started with the kid’s first day back to school after the summer holidays. I have the 2 extremes. My daughter was up dressed and ready to go by 7am (2 hours early). My son had to be woken, carried downstairs (to be fully woken by the dog licking his face) and coaxed through the whole routine, including walking him his new classroom.
The rest of the day is about me. In half an hour I’m off to catch the train to London (I’m in Devon, so it’s about a 3 hour journey), for a 2 hour workshop, after which I get the train back. I should be home about 2am tomorrow morning. (If your maths for hours in the day doesn’t add up, that’s because I’ve saved you from hearing about my morning faffing around doing ‘stuff’).
The workshop is on pitching your novel. Why am I so keen? because later this month I’ll be returning to London to attend an ‘Agents Party’ where I (and god knows how many other writers) get to meet and pitch to agents. So I’m taking all the help I can get!
I’d tell you more but I need to go and faff a bit more before I leave!
