Book update week 1

So, I’ve agreed that as part of this blog, that I’ll talk about the process of writing the book. Some key things to note The book has been contracted, though we’re still pinning down the final agreement – as it’s an n/f book, it’s been contracted off an outline, but I’ve agreed that I’ll get…

G is for Goals #atozchallenge

Goals.Ah, I just swore I think. There was definitely a disturbance in the force… Today I’m going to talk about my goals, and goalsetting. Which goes completely against the grain.You see, I’m a pantser. I do things at the closest to a deadline I can (which is a terrible habit, I know), or I just […]

Nanowrimo Wheeeeee!

It’s my most favorite time of the year – Nanowrimo!  For those of you who don’t know what it is, Nanowrimo is the National Novel Writer’s month.   It’s great fun – a chance to try to write without your inner critic nipping at you because you won’t have time to stop and think about…

The radical changes I need to make #Mondayblogs #Wedswriters

So, I was a bit quiet about it, but I went on holiday for two weeks in the middle of August.  I spent the last two weeks battering around a pile of theme parks…

Books, therapy and blues

So our big Disney adventure starts in two weeks, which I’m quite excited about, as is someone coming to housesit and get some painting done, so that’s also awesome. The eldest is on holiday with his girlfriend right now, the youngest leaves tomorrow for two weeks with her dad, and all that leaves me is […]

More on books and plans, and actually sign up for beta or mailing lists for these.

So yesterday, I had a quick summary through Black Monday, Salvagers and. Today, I’m going to talk about more of the same, and tell you a bit about what the schedule looks like right now. Remember, I’ve got a very Douglas Adams view of deadlines – they whooosh over my head at speed, so I’m […]

Whatcha – let’s talk turkey….

🙂 Ok. So, as many of you can probably see, the blog is undergoing another design overhaul, and as many of you are coming over from Kaiberie.com, I did promise in my freebie, that I’d talk a bit about books. Before I do though – my professional life is a completely different shape than it […]

And then she said….follow me :)

I know, I know, I said yesterday I’d post something, but we filmed this, we filmed some other stuff, and then…well, other things got in the way, so we changed the order we did…

Back? Maybe not, maybe just more vocal…

So. I went my quietest that I’ve ever been in the last few years on social media.  I’ve cut back massively on Facebook, I’m not on Twitter at all really, I’m rarely posting photos to Instagram.  I’ve become slightly more active on Goodreads, but only because I pledged to read 500 books this year.  I’m well on track, I just need to record that, but I’ve spent the last few days…weeks…months really, hiding in my room.  Sleeping.  Watching TV.  No games on my computer, but I did spend a lot of time on my Kindle fire.  I did also do…

The end… #Nanowrimo 2015 after action report

One of the things I’ve been working hard at lately is making myself more present and accountable – instead of living in the past and trying to get past things I can’t change, I am instead working on accepting and understanding why I feel the way I do, while living with my limitations, and working around the issues my mental health presents. One of the major things I had to accept this month is that there’s no way I’m going to be able to work out of the house full-time, any time in the near future.  So I threw (and…
