Last year was ‘a bit of a year’ so I haven’t blogged for a long time. As well as moving house, there was a lot of good stuff and a pile of sad stuff. But I survived and although I didn’t make the writing progress that I had hoped for the stories didn’t leave. I went a...

The final quarter of the 10 minute novelists 365 club didn’t go to plan (which is why this is such a short update) but I did earn a few badges. There was some good news as in October I finally reached the three-quarter mark of the yearly word count target. Throughout t...

I wanted to post this in December but with the Internet connection randomly dropping out and the usual pre-Christmas chaos it wasn’t to be. This post is short but it’s to officially tell you about a collection of Christmas flash fiction that has been published by the F...

In July I signed up to Camp NaNoWriMo with a plan to write new words instead of editing.  I knew it was a bad sign when I needed to reduce my target word count, then chaos took over.  Days would rush by and rudely gesture at me just for good measure.  Hours of typing h...

April saw the arrival of Camp NaNoWriMo, a month of writing or editing where you set your own target.  As I’ve already written about that I won’t add anymore here, other then saying that it was successful.

I like a challenge so I signed up to Camp NaNoWriMo.  As I didn't want to use the month to write more words, my existing monthly target is manageable and must not be messed with, I decided to use it for editing as 1 hour equals 1,000 words.  To add to the fun I doubled...

This year I have a plan.  Yes you read those words correctly, this year while writing I am also dedicating time to completing the projects that are begging to be set free.  I have created a spreadsheet with all of my existing projects.  There is a colour coded system s...

Back in the mists of time (last year) I was nominated to reveal 7 Facts About Me, I accepted the challenge with the words ‘I’ll do this by Christmas’, I just didn’t specify which Christmas.  I’m going to break the rules as I won’t be nominating anyone but to make up fo...

2015 contained plenty of ups and several downs.  I have fought many battles on behalf of my children, in particular for my daughter and some of these will continue into 2016.  I met up with new friends and plans are in the pipeline to meet up with more, I still enjoy...

I don’t refer to my children’s names publicly but many of you will be aware that I have two, a son and a daughter.  One is hearing the other is deaf and both of them amaze me with their fun-filled personalities.


Deafness is not always an easy thing to deal with when...
