April 2013

WHITE RABBITS ….. and all that Jazz!

February and March blended together – mainly work, head down to the grindstone.   I was hoping to emerge in Spring but I am waiting for that switch to be ‘thrown’.

In the main I have stayed quiet on the work front, keeping my usual clients topped up with a bag of words as and when they require – concentrating mainly on my projects albeit a hard task to stitch into the day, hence my candles burn late into the morning – FLAME ON!  In fact I enjoy the late night writing, no distractions, something to be said for quiet solitude, candles and darkness, the imagination runs riot!

NOT good to write up to the bedtime line, or is it?  –  WHY after five minutes of my head hitting the pillow my mind wanders to the threads, I start thinking of amazing story lines and end up grabbing my notebook to etch the new twists and turns ……

…… ALL GOOD FUN, flame is ON!

PS    However, I have date next week to read a new book by Simon Toyne, ‘The Tower’, final book in his wonderful trilogy – if you have not read the other two books WHY NOT – GO GET, I assure you will not be disappointed.  BE sure to clear your diary as they are page turners alright!  

July 2012

July is up… or so it says on my calendar – but, by the looks of the view outside one could be forgiven for thinking it was April!  Showers in abundance, hail and horrendous storms, floods in parts – positively barmy tropical weather!

June saw some interesting commissions completed with one full on week for reading Simon Toynes second book ‘THE KEY’ – a very talented author whose third book is due out Spring next year, an exceptionally well constructed book with threads to twist and turn at an Olympic pace!

The Coldplay concert a particular recent favourite – an AMAZING unforgettable evening shaped with FAB music, fireworks galore and WARM weather – YES warm weather, as I recall it was ONE hot week, alfresco writing was in abundance with a need for a NEW pair of sunglasses to see my words forming on MAC…..Ray-Bans sourced from my wonderful opticians nestling in the heart of Birmingham, Piccadilly Opticians renowned for their wide variety of new, quirky, funky and vintage international eyewear – in a word they are FAB.

Jubilee was a wash out, despite oodles of fun.. tennis is up …. clearly more rain on the horizon!

Olympic torch sped through our local town albeit VERY early Sunday morning…. I managed to raise myself from the pit for that one… a once in a lifetimes experience to see that.

Oh yes and my ‘WANT’ list just got bigger….in my dreams ‘Leica’ camera!  Maybe for my birthday later this month 🙂  ….is that a pink pig flying over head?

PROJECT – my submission deadline date is 30th July…. THIS YEAR!  Candles are out for late night writing – the race is on…..plot drawn, timelines sorted and rearing to go….

Once again thank you to all my new followers, your kind words are appreciated.  To those who I am commissioned by a hearty thank you for allowing me to serve some words up for your various assignments.

I am off to find some evening classes who teach the art of ‘ARK’ building…. may be needing one soon or else I shall be floating away!  Food for thought with my writing, may be needing a hurricane lamp, never mind candles!

Have yourselves a superb July…..FLAME ON!
