Tour de Friends!
Deeply embedded in the world of Cancerville can be a whole heap of beautiful experiences, sprinkled with oodles of silver linings and unexpected relationships. Surprising, I know. But maybe that is good to know if you, or a loved one, has recently been diag...

Stuck in a Book
I'm not really here.  I'm really here...  ...and much as I lament the distinct lack of blogging over the past few weeks, my stiff word with myself has been somewhat successful. The latest draft of the novel had an enormously out of shape middle and only two...

You Called It!
The results are in. A winner has been chosen and my next
novel, until submission at least, has a title. Thank you! I never envisaged I’d receive so many entries to
my What Would You Call It?  competition, nor that it would be so
illuminating. Those little a...

What Would You Call It?
This happened today. Two days ahead of schedule (oh yes) I
scribbled the last note on the last page of the hard copy print out of the
first draft of ‘In The Taxi’. This is the working title of my second novel but
more on that in a moment. The fact that the ...

Almost as Difficult as Football
I was checking my blog stats – AKA engaging in a most
unbecoming form of Google Navel Gazing – and noticed that some kind soul had fallen upon
a blog post from March 2015: Number One Career . I couldn’t remember anything
about it so had a click myself. It's...

The Enormous Hearing Aid Dome
To understand my tale of unbridled joy achieved in the surgery
of an ENT consultant, you should know that my hearing, or lack of it, is the bane
of my life, and I suspect of the lives of many of those close to me, even
though they're too nice to admit it. T...

A Deaf Character
A man 'in his prime', as my mum would say, a retired,
silver-haired lecturer, is not peering down the top of a woman two generations
his junior for reasons of impropriety. This gentleman has a hearing problem.
His head is bent in order to fix his ear as clo...

Sue, that is horrendous. I could barely read it, particularly the part about the 100k novel :( :( Did your pc man manage to retrieve that? I've had a few of those calls where they say, 'Ah Mrs B, we hear you have a problem with your pc' and I take great delight in saying, 'Gosh, that's amazing, are you psychic? How could you have possibly known?' before telling them to go get a life and putting the phone down (amuses me, anyway) but never someone who's got onto my screen. That's terrifying and it certainly could happen to anyone. I have ridiculous amounts of protection and go to great lengths to give false info (DOB etc.) to anything but banks, and still I got scammed by a bogus holiday rental site many years ago. I agree, there's a murky side to this here life of ours but I'm pleased you can manage to put this behind you now!

First Drafts and Happy Endings
In view of the final Christmas cards not writing themselves,
the snow peaked Christmas cake still looking distinctly like a fruit cake and Father
Christmas struggling to get everything wrapped without its little helper, this
will be my last post of 2017. Bu...
