11 days left to completion – Working very nearly around the clock ditching my camomile tea for hardcore coffee and chain-smoking candles.  Matchsticks needed for tonight!  A ‘dead’line is a deadline – giving it my best ‘shot’. 🙂

Well I go to the foot of our stairs…. I won! HECK.. my cover is blown but at least I got to be a Secret Agent albeit for a week.  Go check out Killer Reads and the books by Charles Cumming – one word ‘FAB’.

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!

To all my family and friends here and across the shores

– Happy New Year –

may 2013 bring health, happiness and love in copious amounts, with a dollop of prosperity for good measure

XxX

As time slips away from 2012 I will leave you with these words…..

To see the world in a grain of sand

and to see heaven in a wild flower,

hold infinity in the palm of your hands,

and eternity in an hour.

William Blake

May I take this opportunity in thanking all those I have had the privilege to work with and for during 2012.
Holly Berries Ice melting
Wishing you all a Happy Christmas and a healthy, happy, prosperous 2013 full of oodles of fun and love………

White Rabbits!

……All Hallows’ Eve having just passed, Bonfire night coming up VERY soon…… Christmas on the horizons….. time to strike out the candles – dark nights are up and lots of writing to do.

October felt very short and I could have done with a few more days to add to the thirty-one I appear to have eaten my way through!  …..However as months go it was super productive, completion of magazine entries, overseas commissions, my clients blogs and web-words and a couple of quirky pieces to throw into the pot and THEN off to The Cheltenham Literature Festival for some very interesting and rewarding banter – meeting J K Rowling was probably high up there on my ‘to remember moments’ coupled with the suave and very lovely Roger Moore, both truly enthralled and inspired me – a very interesting Festival full of wonderful people, ideas and what seemed the last of the summer sunshine.

More of the same this month – work orientated, with a dash of photography to add to the pot for pure indulgence – MY time to play!  Talking of which my youngest has been at it again, photographing Lamborghini and Bentley’s to add to her repertoire AND mighty fine pics they are too x

Short and sweet for the 1st of November – I am off to create – with the added bonus of Starbucks RED CUPS arriving this Friday!  I CANNOT WAIT… YAY..x

FLAME ON!
