This is a blog from June from my other Blog site:
I hadn’t appreciated how time consuming being a blogger could be. Which is probably why I don’t do it as often as I should. Besides I’ve been concentrating on finishing the last in the series of Little Friends Picture Story Books.
I have to say how pleased I am with the images for the second set Little Friends – In the Garden. And the next lot of images for Farmyard Fun are, so far, looking very promising.
Having attended a SCBWI workshop recently I was encouraged by all attending to get on with my second historical novel. It’s a sort of ‘semi-biography from a woman’s point of view’ type of novel – if there is such a thing. But the other members enthusiasm for wanting to learn more about the novel has really fired me up. And so with the short stories just about complete I have once again taken up the mantle and begun writing.
Of course, I’m supposed to be retired, so should be taking it easy. Perhaps that why I haven’t rushed doing the book. Having said that I also haven’t finished the musical play based on the same main character. Having had that reviewed by an a retired theatre Director/Actress I am now looking for music to complete it. The lady in question was most encouraging, telling me I needed to get it performed. So I put feelers out and have made a few contacts. Hopefully something will come of it in the not too distant future.
Well that’s it. I realise I am not as good some people at this blogging lark. Maybe I’ll improve with practice?
Have a good day everyone
