Getting reaquainted
I've been having some issues with the plot of my WIP - working title Black Diamond - recently. Even given that it's been too hot to really think, and I know I'm more of a pantser than a planner, all the threads just weren't coming together. I blogged about ...

When life gives you lemons...
There's a saying 'When life gives you lemons, make lemonade', but sometimes it's difficult to focus on the lemonade rather than the lemons...especially as this heatwave continues. My lawn is scorched to a crisp. I'm inside more than out as it's (marginally)...

A day out and other doings...
Boy, has it been hot recently! We're struggling to keep ourselves from wilting - let alone the pot plants and lawn. (Especially since the kitchen was done - we discovered that the outside tap has stuck 'off' and we can't access the connection in the kitchen...

A Special Anniversary
Mr Squidge and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary earlier this week - our Silver Wedding. I wrote about our wedding a little bit three years ago, when I was struck by the passage of time. Somehow, having reached twenty five years, it seems like a Ver...

Sunny!
What is it about the sun in the UK that makes everything feel so much better? We've had a glorious recent Bank Holiday - a bit different to two years ago, when Mr Squidge insisted on a Bank Holiday Barbeque and ended up cooking under a gazebo in the pouring...

Getting started on your first book
This week, I received an email from a lad called Josh. It said; I am a 14-yr-old boy who wants to write his first book. How do I start my first book? I replied with some advice, but thought that actually, this would make a good blog post. So for any other y...
