How does it always arrive so quickly? Every year, at the end of November, we think, wow, that’s it for another year. A year! And then December arrives, with all that comes with it, and then it’s new year and all that comes with that, and then we’re into February. By which time, one quarter of that twelve-month wait for the next NaNoWriMo is already over. Continue reading
It’s weird when something happens, some event, that blows your mind so completely that it takes ages to process it enough to write about the experience.

I couldn’t edit the book I’d started editing, I couldn’t check my emails as often as I usually do and I couldn’t access the Plot Bunnies website enough for my liking (I check it daily). What I wanted to do before my laptop fell ill was blog about the Sport Relief Mile that I ran with my kung fu club (evidence, should you need it, that I was there can be obtained by looking at the photo on our club website).
