What to do with reviews

I owe all the ingenuity of this blog post to my husband. He came up with a great idea of what to do with the reviews for my book The Widow’s Redeemer, and before you think it, no, he did not say ‘Don’t read them’ or ‘Throw them in the bin’. You see, it isContinue reading “What to do with reviews”

The Internet Is No Excuse For Bad English & Grammar

But my screen makes my eyes hurt. But it’s hard to read on a screen. But I can always go back and edit it. I wanted to post a blog yesterday and was seriously upset that I have been so busy and stressed and AHHHHHH-ing that I just couldn’t face my blog. Then today, IContinue reading “The Internet Is No Excuse For Bad English & Grammar”

My Authority – Your Authority

Write with authority or don’t write at all. TThis is a motto – Not my sole motto but one I use as a guideline when writing. Why? Because I do not want to write something and have someone reading it thinking – ‘Well they clearly don’t know what they were talking about because I haveContinue reading “My Authority – Your Authority”

What People Think Pt 2

Do you know what? I was going to write something expanding on this comment my good friend Clare left on this post about caring what people think.

I have been online quite a bit recently, reading forums and postings on Google+ and Facebook in my personal life and I am startingContinue reading “I Am Furious!”

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”

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”

Mega Showdown! Geek Identity Versus Rebel Identity!

So I have been thinking, that is correct, thinking. I know that most of you are now reading this with a slightly worried feeling building in your stomachs, with maybe the realisation that I am going to do a Pip. Well anyway, as I was saying, I’ve been thinking about identity. You see it reallyContinue reading “Mega Showdown! Geek Identity Versus Rebel Identity!”
