Oh Dear Haven't Done A Thing

Yes that's right I haven't looked at or done anything to any of my WIP since before Christmas. That is so bad. I do have a good excuse, well for after Christmas I do, I've been sick. Never felt so bad for a long time. I have no idea what is wrong with me, Christmas Day was lovely, went over to our daughters in the morning to watch our grandson open his presents. Yes I went crazy again and bought him too much. But hey he is my only grandchild, the only one I'm likely to have for a while by the look of things. Anyway I had a great morning with my family. Which is nothing unusual we always have a great Christmas morning.

Then Boxing Day woke up so sick. I put it down to too much rich food, but I'm no better really and it is almost a week later. Oh well I'm off to the doctors on Friday so maybe he'll have some answers for me. The worst thing is the light head, I know there's not much up there but I'm tied of walking around hanging onto walls and things so I don't fall over. So I've been laying on the lounge watching my Grey's Anatomy DVDs. Today is the first day I've felt like spending time in front of the computer, well for more then just checking emails and posting the odd comment here and there.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and wish you all a very Happy New Year and hope you achieve all your goals. Be chatting again in 2008.

Yes! That is what I am doing!!!!!

I’ve been very bad since the last SVEN check in. I haven’t done a thing and there is no real good reason for it. I could have found the time if I wanted too.

So what have I been doing? I’ve been visiting family and friends for Christmas. Oh and I had my grandson for a couple of days because he was sick and couldn’t go to sick. He is such a crack up. He’s eight going on eighty.

Anyway I need to get back into editing and writing. I’ve come up with some more novel ideas, just what I need more people in my head. Oh and writing long hand sucks. I’m still resting my wrist as much as possible, not that it is helping any. I think that is why I’m letting little Miss Procrastinate talk me out of doing anything on my WIP. Just the thought of having to write long hand only to have to type it all into the computer later. No it far easier just to leave it. See this is what happens when we get to used to all our mod cons. We turn into lazy, lazy people. Well I have anyway.

So I’ve had my whinge, it is now time to pick my butt up and do some work.

Until next time. Happy writing.

What Have I Been Up To???

Not much!!! I've edited part of one of my WIP as well as the first two chapters of 'Baby Can I Hold You.' There is going to be some big changes to this novel I think. I also got five pages written long hand on one WIP. I now have a new found respect for Jane Austen and the likes.

I've also been working on my new Web Site and I now have a Facbook site as well as a Yahoo 306 site. So I'm meeting some very nice people, a few of them are on all the sites I'm on, which is good.

So until next time.

Post NaNo

NaNo has come to an end and I'm ??????

I have a new Website: so pop over and have a look if you get time. I have a direct link back to here as well as some of my other sites.

I've started doing some editing. Not getting very far, but at least I've started. I went to the phyiso on Tuesday. Big trouble. Yep she told me I'm not to do any extensive typing for a few months until my tendon heals. All the typing I did during November was not a good thing, even if I was using my right hand for the larger part.

Got my results back from a comp I entered. I have too much back story and my sentences run into each other. Always have talked without drawing a breath, guess my writing is the same.

One another note I have a few friends still in the Karin Tabke, One Line Comp. YA Aussie's, the girls are going great guns.

Well I really should try and get some housework done today and some more editing. So until next time, hope you all enjoy the rest of your week. And may the word fairy tap you on the shoulder and give you loads of inspiration.
