A temporary truce...

... between Charlie and  Gumtree! And yes those are bits of their fur on the carpet as this was taken after a most vigorous knockabout-play-fight-play that they both won of course! :-)

Bloggie friends!!!

This writing a 50,000 word novel in 30 days is bizarre but it's taught me two things:

1) I'm literally and metaphorically writing rubbish just to get to the word count! LOL!
2) I miss blogging! I miss you all!!!

See you at the finishing line!
p.s. Gum-Gum goes for his "little operation" this Thursday so please wish him luck!

Peace and a Nano confession!

Bloggie friends!!

Peace at last? 

Charlie says: Nah, I still rule!
Gumtree says: I like my fluffy toy, Charlie!

And now my confession!
I am actually doing my first NaNo (National Novel Writing Month)! Ahem. 

But I deliberately didn't join any forums etc because I want to do this by myself and see if I can. Here is my progress (apologies to the organisers if I wasn't meant to show this! ) 

As you can see - I have a long long way to go. So forgive me if I disappear for a bit in November while I try and catch up with my word count! Wish me luck! 

p.s. Skyfall was BRILLIANT! Daniel Craig can totally have me! Ahem. Off I go now to have a cold shower. :-)

Bonfire of the Vani-kitties and NaNo alternative!

Bloggie friends!

Yes I know I said I'd not be posting but just wanted to say:

Happy Bonfire/Guy Fawkes Night!

And here is a groovy competition for all those finding the NaNo thing (writing a 50,000 word novel in a month) daunting - a mini-NaNo writing competition!

Write a 900 word story in the month of November - that's just 30 words a day! Entry is free and the prize is a publication on the website. Details here.

Charlie says: I command this little tyke to stay down!

I may not be commenting so much this week - but I'll try to keep up nonetheless!

Mr Bond, here I come!
