Of course as far as my writing goes, wipe-out. I haven't done any editing since Tuesday I think. If it wasn't my ear giving me hell, it was my web site. The web site I think I may have pretty well sorted, there are a few things I'd like to change or add things here and there, but on a whole I'm happy with it at the moment. I own a big thanks to all that helped me out with the fine tuning. Do you like my little Sven counter? Portia Da Costa made it, soooo cute. I made a couple and put them on my home page, one is a countdown to the RWAustralia conference. I was quite pleased with myself. If you would like to have a look http://www.sandiehudson.com I also did one for NaNoWriMo.
So that is me for the moment. I'm off to do some housework, YUCK. Tomorrow I plan to be back at my computer working away on my editing and stories.

Did you know that your site can look completely different depending on which web browser you use. I had a few people tell me that some of my headings were over running paragraphs. Absolutely amazing. I thought you did your thing then put it on the web. Yeah right, not even close.
So today I had three different browsers going to check how I was going. I'd do a bit save it, Then check the browser's. I had to do away with my side bar links thingy to my pages, all three were showing different results. One was perfect, everything where it should have been. But the other two, shutter, just the thought of it. So I dumped it all, looks better now anyway I think. I checked out some of the other girls sites and they only have the navigator bar.
I also found this really cool link widget thingy. My blog is linked to it so if you're on my site you can read my blog there. So cool.
As you can imagine, I've done no writing or editing today. Plus the fact that my ear is giving me hell. Had to get Jim to drive me over shopping, I had enough trouble walking in a straight line let alone try to drive. Hence I didn't go for my review with the doctor either, put that off until next week.
Thanks everyone for your comments about my site and to all those lovely people that let me know I had a few problems and or mistakes a big THANK YOU, it is good to know that you took the time to read what I had to say.
Okay that is more then enough dribble for one night. Hope you all have a great Easter.

It's a cool site and Miss P had me playing there for a couple of days. She is such a bad girl.
Anyway I'm hoping now she will go and bother someone else and leave me to my writing. Until next time.

I seem to be doing everything back to front on this novel. I always have a title picked out before I start my writing and I know, or at least have names for my characters. At this stage I have a first name for my heroine but no surname. I’m also not at all happy with either my hero or heroines names. Oh well, if they are any thing like my other characters they’ll let me know what their names should be somewhere down the track.
Right now I’m heading off to bed, it’s 12.40 am here. Yet another late night. I’ll blog again soon.
