Last night I fell asleep reading [Whiskey Tango Foxtrot] and had some crazy dreams. It's not the first time I've fallen asleep reading [WTF] but it's the first time I've read it like it is now. Pretty well done. It's exciting reading it as a real (almost) finished book. It came in just over 85k. … Continue reading Well, I’ve been haunted in my sleep.
Written in Leaves
It took two years and then some to write this story but now it's a thing. A proper thing. I even went hardback because I can. 🙂 At 38 thousand words it is a novella. Sue and I do not like when people say they've written a novel and it's under 80k. And if it's … Continue reading Written in Leaves

Writers Plot Bookshop is 5 years old and we struggle to get Kiwi’s to support their own; their own local businesses; their own authors (who are infinitely better than any overseas authors).

Friday Dec 20
Friday was a surprising day - first I managed to write 3000 words while manning the bookshop despite constant interruptions and they were not of the sale variety - good effort there. Then, Charlie messaged me about lunch. Marvelous! So it was out to lunch with Pip, Charlie, and Mrs Harris (somethings just stick). Jolly … Continue reading Friday Dec 20
Ten things about this week …
It's my birthday on Dec 12. I will be spending it alone because everyone is always busy in December and because My Knight isn't here this year. AND I HATE IT. So there's that. 😦 It's also Ellie's birthday on Dec 12. Surprised? You shouldn't be, I did that on purpose so I didn't have … Continue reading Ten things about this week …
