Just a very quick post to apologise for my sporadic posting… I am working really hard on my MS at the moment – days are currently reduced to tapping furiously away, eating once or twice, and passing out before the next day begins.

So thank you, and please keep reading!

I recently read a post by ‘A Opinionated Man’ (and apparently, YES, he KNOWS it should be ‘an’) where he answered what for many of us must be a pressing question – ‘where does he find the TIME?’  (more…)

On Giving Advice…

I am no expert. I am not published. I have not even finished writing my first full-length novel yet. Because of this, I feel massively under qualified and rather self-conscious about the idea of trying to give advice to other would-be writers.

Then, earlier today, I had a revelation. (more…)


I began this blog a couple of weeks ago, and since then many of my evenings have been spent staring blankly at my screen, my mind desperately scrabbling for a worthy first post. Nothing seems an appropriate topic with which to begin a blog; they all seem like the sort of thing I’d like to write once I have already introduced myself; and thus I find myself back at square one: how do I say hello to someone I have never met?
