Author Blog: Snot bubbles and Sirens…

sirens

As usual my luvlies, in no particular order:

  1. Did you know #98732: My house sits on a line between two Universes. Out back is all sunshine, bird song, swaying trees and scented flowers. The other side is pissy rain, sirens, traffic, more sirens and kids screaming. (‘No, Sam, you just live by a road.’)

  3. The most difficult thing about striving (which I am currently) is that the ‘good days are coming’ analogy wears really fucking thin. If me and that analogy were in a small room together, I’d beat the snot out of it and then tell it not to worry.
  4. Ya know how fruit juice tastes rank after you’ve brushed your teeth? Well, so does coffee. I made three this morning before I was satisfied. Sinful waste of coffee, I know.
  5. I’m a water sign. Which means that I need to be sea/ocean side fairly often. This is hopefully happening next week. If not it’s going to be a week of headaches and snot bubbles.
  6. I watched ‘Finding Dory’ for the 327th time this week. The octopus in the sink flipping the doodad switch makes me spray my coffee EVERY time. (and typing ‘Finding Dory’ in giphy.com gives you a load of Doris Day gifs…)
  7. Speaking of movies, what ever happened to the original Evil Dead movie? Yes. Yes I made that jump. Am I not epic?
  8. While I was writing my last book, I got a piece of advice that is probably the second best piece of advice I’ve ever received: ‘Never use exclamation marks. It’s like laughing at your own jokes.’ You’re welcome.
  9. Eight’ish thousand words in to my third book, which means I have two on the go. I just read an article by a professional writer who gets 10,000 words in A DAY. Now suddenly feel like a sloth on Valium.
  10. This is also the time of year where I swear up and down I’m going to attend the Summer Solstice at Stone Henge on June 21st. And promptly forget. Despite it being twenty minute drive away from me.

Quote of the week:
