Squeezing it Out

Well, I don't know what you thought I was talking about, but I am, of course, referring to my outline. I managed another half page today and thought I was doing pretty well okay until I realised I'd gone off on a right tangent and was talking about the heroine of my next novel. Oops. Never mind, because luckily she just so happens to be the neighbour and best friend of Daisy so I think I'll leave it in so I don't get too confused when mentioning her.

It's weird because I never set out to write a series of linked books, but when a chick like Kim grabs hold of your muse and won't let go until you write her story, it's kind of hard to say no. And then of course Daisy wandered into the rock concert scene with a whole secret life of her own to tell.

It's a good job I'm a writer and can talk about my imaginary friends without being thought totally crackers, huh?

No Emails!!

Last night dh decided to swap our hard drives around. The reason for this is because he won a graphic card (or chip??) but when it arrived the pesky thing wouldn't fit in his computer. However, there just so happened to be space for it in mine. Oh no!!

I tried very hard not to panic as he dismantled the big box thingies and reminded myself I have all my work backed up in about six different places. He was oddly unappreciative of the many helpful comments I offered in his shell like and in the end pleaded with me to go to bed and leave him in peace to work... I'm sure I don't know what he meant by that?

Thankfully everything seemed ok this morning, apart from the scarily empty incredimail boxes. All my folders need to be transferred... I am sooo looking forward to that job. Hmm. But then I discovered that during the period of transferral last night, emails to me went AWOL . Argh!

Who knows who might have tried to contact me last night down under time? And I'll never know! Omigod! I hate it when emails go walkabout!

Recommended Reading!

I finished reading A Connecticut Fashionista in King Arthur's Court last night and just want to say how much I enjoyed the delicious Lancelot. Umm, I mean Kat's adventures with Lancelot. Heh heh.

If you love reading chick lit, paranormal, medieval romance or all of the above, this book delivers in sassy kick-ass (or can I say arse...?) style. I laughed out loud at some of Kat's misadventures as she tried living a millennium before she was even born and as for yummy Sir Lancelot... oops did I mention he was tasty already?

I'm sooo glad there's a sequel... you'll have to read the novel to find out why. I'm evil like that...
