BuJo Shop is open!

Hello! I have some exciting news – my Bujo Shop is open!

I love Bullet Journals and think they hold such potential for writers, so I decided to start designing and creating pages to help with plotting, planning, marketing and writing.

If you are interested, please have a look at my shop. All items are very reasonably priced ($). I currently have two for November, one A4 sized and A5 sized.

If you are as excited as I am about Bullet Journals, please sign up to my mailing list for monthly freebies and news. I’ve got such plans for December!

Please message me if you would like me to work on a commission for you and your Bullet Journal.

 

#oktowrimo

I’m quite a visual person, so I’ve been enjoying completing photo challenges in Instagram. This month’s challenge has been #oktowrimo by @author_r.c.martin and has involved a mixture of challenges regarding my WIP and Halloween. I’ve really enjoyed it, plus I’ve got to know some great people.

If you’re on Instagram please follow me and say “hi!”

Kindle Editing

I’m currently in the throws of self-editing The KeyMaster, as well as working on my website and writing some prequels.

Whilst researching editing, one of the articles by Joanna Penn, mentioned editing on the Kindle. After a bit more research I discovered I could email my manuscript to my Kindle to read as an ebook. (This is a whole new world to me!) Finally successful, I didn’t realise just how exciting it would be seeing my book on a Kindle!

Sadly the process has highlighted formatting issues that will need rectifying, but small steps!

If you would be interested in seeing your book on your Kindle and don’t know where to find your Kindle’s email address just message me and I’ll post some instructions.

Bye for now!

Murphy’s Law

Well, it’s my first day off from work since June. I have childcare and I can actually sit at the table and write today! (First time in months) But my laptop has 20mb left in memory and, typically, it’s chosen today to give up the ghost. The fates are cruel! Laptop shopping is a must I’m afraid my blue gem – you have served your author well!

My work station today – complete with blank screen…

A writer’s life ruled by naptimes

As a very lucky mother to a young toddler, I don’t get much free time for my writing (Yes, I could wake early but I’m so shattered from teething that that’s currently impossible). So my writing time is restricted to naptimes, unless that naptime is needed to do planning for my lessons.

So, yesterday I had a clear naptime and had got my laptop out to start writing when my neighbour comes round for a chat.

An hour’s chat!

I could have cried! I probably should have asked to get on with the work I was blatantly about to undergo, but I didn’t want to be rude. Then my toddler woke up and all hopes of writing were gone.

What would you have done?

Hopefully today will be more successful…
