Almost forgot about...

...the synopsis, but that's done and dusted now too.


Just gotta wait for a while (as in weeks not hours 😜) so that I can forget everything I've written before the first edit, then I'll be sorted and able to plan my next novel.

Are there any subjects that you think are a touch thin on the ground in the world of childrens books atm that I could research and write please?

It's been almost 11 months since the last update, but...

...the writing ideas software, for my members who have bought it, has just been updated and the update is available for free as I promised when you bought it!

Aaaaand...'s finished!


25,002 words written in 9 days ain't bad going at all, considering it's neither JanNo nor NaNo and I've had at least half an hour off for lunch every day as well as breakfast and doing the daily news and checking emails, the forum and Facebook as well.


Gonna reward myself with a "posh" (cafetierre) coffee and relaaax.

That's it for the day now

I've somehow managed to write 8 chapters today, which is more than double (very close to triple) what I was struggling to achieve a week ago.  I've got 7 left to write, which I'm hoping I'll manage to achieve tomorrow, then I can celebrate with a "posh" (cafetierre) coffee and give myself a few days off, then start on the huge pile of MS editing that's waiting for me!

Just starting to tie up loose ends now, but the final full stop is within reach and my reward is getting closer and closer by the hour.

I'm gonna check my emails and Facebook then head to bed I reckon.

Goodnight all.


I've written another two chapters in just a smidgen over 2 hours, so that's 7 chapters written today and I haven't even taken my evening pills yet!  I've currently got 8 chapters left to write then it's all done and dusted in under two weeks!

I'm gonna make a start on chapter 27 (my eighth one of the day), take my last two pills at 7pm then have an early night when I've finished the chapter!  A week ago I was proud of myself for achieving three chapters a day, but I've already doubled that today and I'm hoping (fingers crossed), that I'll put the final full stop in tomorrow, which'll be about 10 days sooner than I was thinking a week ago, and I'll be celebrating with my second reward in 3 or 4 days!

Feeling rightly proud of myself right now.

It's only 4.15pm and I've already achieved...'s five chapters, so I'm hoping I'll hit seven chapters by the time I head to bed tonight, which would be awesome!

Keep them fingers crossed for me and I might even be able to finish it by bedtime on Monday after all!
