Bits and Pieces
Posted by Joanne Hayle
They say that variety is the spice of life and after this week I believe it!
Apart from reading the shorter books on my Kindle ready for me to really get in to War and Peace…
I’ve been working on getting some of my e-books in to a printed format which was a bit daunting but a lot of fun.
I wrote a Hallowe’en poem and a Christmas children’s story within a couple of hours of each other, a seasonal literary shift with only lunch to separate them!
I’ve also written another preschool/kindergarten children’s story and published that as an e-book.
And, in case you were thinking “oooh what a show off!!” I also wrote a children’s story that when I returned to it the next day I thought that was pants to give it a really technical phrase! and I immediately and ruthlessly deleted it and rewrote it. Sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind!
I was shortlisted for a competition too – top three apparently – soooo close and yet soooo far from the prize! Hey ho.
I actually managed to oversleep a little on two mornings this week – I think it’s the darker autumn mornings that are to blame and it’s ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the words willpower, sleepy and cosy!! Actually, I think it’s thanks to the anxiety disorders getting sorted too, that makes sleep SO much easier!
Next week I shall be editing like a ninja – as long as my duvet and I find a way to separate! 😉
Have a fab weekend.
