Nice thread. Afraid to post, but here I go....Good morning, today I plan to get my feet wet in the horror-genre again (after a three-year hiatus *sigh*) and hope my brain can remember the joys of writing......and reading......and any other number of things I've missed out on the past three years.

Come on in, the water's lovely!  Cheesy

The young man responsible for the collab project I've had to pull out of has been very gracious and professional and has left the door wide open so that I can return in the future, if I want, which is very nice and unexpected of him.  In the meantime, I'm going to try and crack on with a few story ideas myself, including one in-progress 80's horror movie-style novel and a full length Jonny Cave adventure.   whoah

Too fun, Rev. Nothing better than the 80s and how lucky you have that open door. I still have a few of the old contacts, but my old haunt (yes, pun intended) is no more.

Three years off, huh? Why's that, if you don't mind me being nosey?

I've taken breaks from time to time, and generally I feel like each time I start again I make a bit of progress, so it's probably a good thing, I reckon. Hopefully that's true afro

Rev -- that was lucky. Sometimes people can get really narky about stuff like that. There's no point overstretching yourself, though, is there. You can get to the stage where you're rushing through everything and not giving things the care they deserve. That's no fun for anybody.

That comment piqued my curiosity, as well. If I hadn't been running so late this morning after writing up my last critique for this month, I probably would have asked! Call me nosey, too.

Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This week has been the week from hell. Long days, short nights, dark evenings.... Haven't touched my story that I was so excited about last weekend - hopefully the magic will still be there this weekend. I'm planning on having a reasonably chilled day ("Divert that phone, Del!" is today's motto). Already arranged a predator fishing trip for Sunday (6.30 am - ugh!) and, weather permitting will pound some miles on the bike tomorrow to get this stress out of my system.

Right, coffee, and timesheets....

Nosey Nellies are mostly welcome. lol
Forced hiatus really - two little ones under the age of four at home keeps me in the land of Dora and Scooby. Writing is confined to work-related stuff and journaling......however, a million-and-one ideas of 'death by diapering' stories abound.....
I'm just thankful the oldest wee one begs for Scooby Doo - at this point, I'll take scary stuff any way I can get it.....Creeper and all....

Had an inspirational time at NewCon. I didn't know about Kaffeeklatsche sessions before - coffee and chat with an author. Mine was with Paul Cornell, who writes Dr Who books and stage plays among other successes. Good result in getting a yes from Juliet McKenna to look at my Xaghra's Revenge novel with a view to an endorsement. I need names to view it to make an impression on publishers.

I know how that feels. They have the ability to scramble every thought in your head for what seems like an eternity, but you do start to get your life back a bit when they go to playschool and then proper school. It's pretty full on in the early years, though, isn't it? smiley

A few of us went for a wander to a local park yesterday to see how the 'rejuvenation' of it's coming along - there's a new playground for the kids and an awful lot of dirt, so it wasn't quite as impressive as we'd all been led to believe  grin today I'm off to view some more houses, including one I booked a viewing for before I realised it was in a real rough part of town.  Whoops!  But the agency handling it seem pretty posh so it might be nice inside... rolleyes and I'm REALLY excited for tomorrow, because I'm having a jam with a couple of friends of mine.  I haven't played any music in two years so I really hope our different styles work well together (they like "pop-punk" and I like, well, we've already established it's not normal).  I guess I'll soon find out haha

Oh yes, full on is the nice way of putting it.  Thank the heavens for wine in mass quantities.

Today I saw a house with a toilet installed in the corridor.  Now I really have seen everything!

How bizarre is that?
