Found the novel I thought I'd lost

It's a novella called 'kiss your cares away' - I was getting confuzzled between that one and my post NaNo novel that I've only planned out so far.  I can stop getting flustered about it now!  Yay!

Review of Opal Moonbaby

Just finished listening to an amazing book that I found out about from someone on SCBWI

The author has an awesome imagination and an incredible way with words.  It started off a bit slow and weird but after a couple of chapters I really got into it and wanted to know what would happen next.

There was an emotional chapter close to the end and because it was so well written I thought I was going to let an accidental tear slip out of my eye.

A definite must read/listen to and there are other books by the same author... just got to find out which one comes next!

Don't read if there are small eyes close to you

I'll just be ranting so there will probably be a lot of swearing in this, so if you've got small eyes reading this, close it down until they are out of the room.

I could have sworn I wrote a novel and finished it at the end of September.

I even kept a daily word count on this blog.

Just tried to find it and it's vanished!

It's not on my laptop.

It's not on One Drive.

It's not in the recycle bin and it's not on my external hard drive either!

Means that I'll have to write the whole damn thing again after NaNo!

I've had enough of this happening to me - it's not the first fucking time and it prolly won't be the last but it takes the piss!

Don't suppose any of you have a copy of "Because I said so" that I emailed to you at some point do you?  I know it's a very long shot, but I'm willing to try and get even a small amount of it back right now!

Gonna be writing another Early Reader tomorrow, thanks to...

I'm gonna be writing about Dyslexia tomorrow and I already know the MC's name which is a new one for me!  lol

It's things like that which make the annual membership fee at SCBWI worthwhile for me... I can have a vague idea of the story (Dyslexia) then post it asking for help and within a few hours I've got it all planned out ready for writing!

It's not cheap but it's so worth it for things like this!

Finished Adam's Adventure and renamed it now

Just finished writing the ER after pondering on it for 2 days and I've decided to rename it to "Adam at school" because I couldn't think of a safe adventure he could go on alone!

Pondering on basing my next ER on a child with special needs next... gotta do some basic research first though!
