Blimey, it’s been all go this week. Last night McCat caught sight of another cat in the garden and went nuts, I was alerted by the sound of a plant being knocked from a windowsill. Things went downhill from there, with McCat moving to the cat flap. He smashed it two weeks ago trying to get at this […]

Back on topic this week, I was asked for some advice by a writer who is just starting work on her first book. Even though she appears to be of sound mind, she was dead chuffed with what I wrote and asked if I’d share it on my blog so she could send people to the post. As […]

…And the danger of over confidence when coupled with good intentions. This week, I was going to talk a little more about happiness being a state of mind, but I only have a few minutes to do this in so it’s more of a dump it and leg it!

I’m not here this week, so by the wonders of technology, I am going to post to my blog and give a talk at the same time. So without more ado, here’s a piece outlining my theories about pimping your world to add realism to your writing. _______________________________________________ Pimp your world! Real life can feel like an unwelcome […]

Posted March 17, 2018 and visited 682 times, 3 so far today

It’s been a busy week this week. McMini is due to go on a school trip which involves two nights away. I have therefore been spending most of the week with a list of required clothing working out which items we have and buying the ones we don’t have. Pretty much all of them. In order to try and […]
