Not much longer now…

Only a few short hours to go and you will find out what the big secret is on my blog on April 1st.

In the meantime, I’ve added links to blogs/sites that I follow and have added a rather lengthy biography about me (subject to change if I decide I can write it better and more concise… not to mention add other goodies.

So until April 1st, I’ll sign off…



Watch this Space…

Watch here on April 1st. Something exciting is coming to Celtic Connexions. And no, it’s not an April Fools joke.

Secrets of a Page-Turner Workshop

Yesterday’s Brian Henry workshop was fantastic! As with all the other workshops I’ve attended, this one sent me away energized and ready to write. The amount of information given never leave you feeling overloaded or overwhelmed. Brian has a way of entertaining while teaching.

I’m looking forward to his next workshop that I’m registered for on April 10th.

Woo Hoo!!!

The dreaded wonky “S”

Not sure what’s the root cause of it, but the “S” key on my laptop has been wonky of late, to say the least. Right now it seems to be working fine but when you’re working away on a “particularly gripping” segment, having to go back and add “s” every time it doesn’t appear where it should becomes extremely frustrating, not to mention by the time you get the missing letters added, your train of thought as been derailed. Sometimes, it’s so bad that even when you go back and read from the beginning of the passage you never get back on track. Your vision of the perfect scene is up in a poof of smoke… or a wonky “s”.


Another successful writing date

Well, we were a bit later getting started today but all in all, successful for the three of us. I managed 817 words on my manuscript, even though I was contending with an “s” key that wasn’t responding. Still isn’t cooperating as well as I would like it to but it is behaving better. Think the keyboard on the laptop needs a D&C.


Off track… sort of

Well, I’ve not done any work on my manuscript but I have been schmoozing to newspaper editors to get them to publish my review of Night Watcher.

I’ve spent most of this evening since I got settled after the grocery store run sorting and organizing my e-mails on my laptop. Egads! I didn’t realize what kind of a state it was in.

But now I have folders and subfolders and everyone is organized (well not quite yet but the eyeballs were starting to cross) and filters created so everyone drops in where they should.

Hopefully, that will make life easier for me going forward.
