I missed a week, many apologies – it just seemed to vanish. Group meetings, Christmas lunches and just trying to catch up with life:( anyway am back.
Not much to report – The Fiddling Feline, the Flea and the Frog et al has begun a little tour to a few sites. I have been guest posting on some sites about fairy tales and magic and along with short samples from the book. It is fun:) and there is a give away- names taken from any comments on the various sites.
Have done some book signing for The Fiddling Feline and of goes another book – ’tis odd feeling when one finishes writing that has taken months of one’s life.

1) I am showcasing a collection of children’s books being offered in kindle editions, a collection of authors have grouped together to offer these in a Tots to Teens give away offer. One a day on my Red Carpet. Kate Mueller today, Jo Linsdell yesterday. More to come:)
2) I finished Nano with 70,000 odd. Mostly Menko – my little blue monkey type creature took over and the story is firmly about him, not the so called hero and his girl! He has also morphed from monkey type creature to an early offshoot of our evolutionary tree – the lost link maybe:) I am fascinated at how these characters shape the writing – when I started this story was still only a vague outline loosely based on a novel I had attempted to write over 5decades ago, (a very bad story I tell you:( and here it is in the hands of Menko, full of self importance and vanities. I have grown very fond of him during the month:)
3) I managed a few thousand on The Memory Keeper also, so was pleased with that. Much more difficult piece of writing. However this one and Menko is being set aside as I have two WIP which need seeing too. Pleased to report inspiration has returned for The Ancestors Tale and managed to write 2000 words towards it today. Happy me:)
I improve healthwise every day and this week have managed two sessions of lace making and have hopes I might finish a piece I seem to have been working on for ever! before the end of the year. Yesterday I managed a 17 hr day without a lie down or a sleep it must be six months since I have been able to do that – of course I’m not so lively today! ah well. The rest of December is all about ordering life, putting blog sites into order, editing, writing but at a much slower pace than November.
Hope everyone had good week and all the best for this coming one:)
