Re: Nanowrimo

A lot of people use NaNoWriMo to start something fresh. It's a good time to jump on a new idea because, let's face it, a month isn't a huge amount of time to spend away from your WIP. It's also good to get some distance if you're frustrated with what you're currently working on. That way, come Dec 1...

Re: Nanowrimo

Geez... I think I may have to join too. My WIP needs a rewrite and I'm thinking 50,000 words should be a good revamp.

Random fact about a Blue Tongue: they have sharp teeth.

Re: The Final Battle...does it have to be a cliche?

My main character is someone who does whatever is best for her. Every move she makes is calculated to make a better life for herself. Until the end. She finds out who the bad guy is, goes after him, kills some minions and then find out that by killing him, it will literally kill her best friend. She...

Re: Things I wish I'd been told when I started

I've written two books, roughly two hundred thousand words and you're telling me I still have to write another three to even be in the game? Geesh, lucky I've already started my third then, hey? Okay, so I think the single most important thing I've learnt is that the majority of authors/agents/publi...

Re: What are you reading now?

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare - the prequel to the Mortal Instruments series. Ooh, I was eyeing that one on Amazon yesterday. I haven't read the Mortal Instruments series yet, though. Should I read those first for the prequel to make sense? (That sentence shouldn't make sense, LOL) Lol I don't...

Re: what makes you choose a book??

Usually, if people are raving a book, I avoid reading it. I'm not sure why. Occasionally, if something is really hyped I'll read a synopsis and decide if I like it. I'm a big one for covers. Hunger Games, I resisted for ages until I couldn't bare the hype. I caved, and I actually like it. Bu the thi...

Re: Writer's conferences?

That's a pity Margo. Those workshops sound good and it would have been nice to meet up. At least I have somewhere to start.

:) Thanks.

Re: If you were an agent....

I'd have one author, she'd make me a billionaire and then I'd retire.

Re: What is a typical day like for you?

I work shift work, so my days are rather atypical. Today, with no work, went as follows: Wake up whenever. Sift through forums/blogs/emails/messages on my iPhone while I'm still trying to wake up. Coffee! Hang clothes on line and put more washing on. Drop my dear siblings at school. Coffee! and star...
