Not My Kind of Music….

I was reading a book the other day and I was delighted (yes, I used that word) to find at the back of the book, after I’d finished, the author had written: When writing I often play music in the background, and sometimes a theme song will grab me for each character, or a certainContinue reading “Not My Kind of Music….”

I don’t care what you think….much

I’m not blogging about any of this Valentine’s day claptrap! Just kiddin’, but seriously, I’m not….I’m going to blog about something intrinsic to the majority of human beings – It is interesting that we all care what people think isn’t it? ….scratch that…..It’s ANNOYING! Why is it that we are exactly what Mumford & SonsContinue reading “I don’t care what you think….much”

Rifles, Honour and, ah yes, a Couple of Wenches!

So, researching history (and I use the term as loosely as verbally possible) is SUCH FUN! Well it is when you get to look at Sean Bean in Sharpe. He’s a real life version of these guys: Be all heroic, gruffly chivalrous and mmmm…. Of course, I do have to turn my head sideways andContinue reading “Rifles, Honour and, ah yes, a Couple of Wenches!”

6048 Hours

Thanks to the idea in my last post, in 6048 Hours = 252 Days = 36 weeks = 9 months… Well actually, seeing as it’s February already I’m giving myself 8 months = 32 weeks = 224 days = 5376 hours to write a minimum of 3 books but hopefully more…. Impressive? Well, only ifContinue reading “6048 Hours”

I Killed a Basil Plant

I bought a basil plant from the supermarket the other day…. ….and managed within a few days to kill the poor thing. Yes, your right, I am a murderer. I over watered it, kept it warm and in the sun and guess what I got back? Shrivelled leaves…. hmmmm….not ideal for the Italian dish. I thinkContinue reading “I Killed a Basil Plant”

The BEST Blog Ever…..Oh, wait, that was someone elses

I am not eloquent. I dislike syrupy blogs which drip with niceties. I am not particularly well-read. I have an inability to stay in a consistent blogging mood or style. I am not full of fluffy bunny stories about my life – I prefer comedy and grumpiness. I make no promises to transform your thinking.Continue reading “The BEST Blog Ever…..Oh, wait, that was someone elses”

I have an unusual attachment to my loo

Now, it’s not some weird type of gross problem. Honestly. If anything that title should make you chuckle and hopefully, if you’ve had a pants day, it’s brought a smile to your face. But I am totally serious. I have a weird type of attachment to my bathroom (notice I changed from loo…I’m not tellingContinue reading “I have an unusual attachment to my loo”

The First In A Series

Hey, so I’ve realised that writing a book is hard. It’s really quite hard. Now I’m not exactly talking about scrawling a few lines down that you happened to think sound nice. Or even writing half a book before getting side-tracked or bored. I’m talking about writing a whole entire novel, reading, re-reading, revising, re-revisingContinue reading “The First In A Series”

3D Writing

Isn’t it interesting that we associate different smells with different things? The other day I was cycling home and, weirdly, I could suddenly smell coconut. It was like the coconut that you have in a moisturiser but for me, it reminded me of sun-cream. It reminded me of that coconut sun-cream you used to get and squirt outContinue reading “3D Writing”

New Job, Old Story & Little Time.

[slideshow] God has been good, God is always good, God will continue being good!  I was offered a job today at a local riding stables and I was pretty much bouncing off the walls with excitement after I accepted it. There are three good things about this: 1. Answer to prayer. 2. Steady Pay. 3.Continue reading “New Job, Old Story & Little Time.”
