    Yep. Really struggling with both, but especially one, knee. Don't know if it's writing, but it's a pisser.

    Interesting, Mike. And thank, Alan and Whisks. I think I might risk it; it happened 100 years ago :-)

    Great responses back then... tougher crowd. Ironically, it is a shattered knee that forced me to write. Soldiering, rugby, being overweight, pipefitting and Her-indoors' constant demands for absurd sexual positions had taken a lifetime's worth of ...

    I am the "proud" owner of a dodgy knee. I know not whether it was caused by writing since it pre-dates my "creative" writing. It does not, however, pre-date will writing, nor my bills which I am sure clients would claim to be creative. My answer to ...

    About 6 months ago I was just getting up from the sofa and had to sit back down. Three months in knee brace and still a bit nervous. I was just doing what I always do.

    Hmm, well that's well weird. If you navigate from the Latest Activity timeline, the link will take you, irrelevantly, to a list of members. But if you navigate from the side panel on the right, Latest Articles, it will take you to the proper ...

    Poor ole Chris (love of my life, Lindy Hop dancing partner, writer of brain-fusingly complex fantasy) has a hurty knee. It stiffened up when we pounded round London a few weeks back, went majorly stiff when we resumed Lindy Hopping, and yesterday, ...

    This is for ‘Squidge’ .  It is a bit late.  I don’t know if it is of interest?   (It is 800 words)    (From ‘The Hindoos’ published by ‘The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge” (1835)  Page ...

    Thanks, Kaz. Yes, I agree about David Bowie. And also he didn't just stick at the thing he was good at. He constantly looked for new directions and fresh inspiration. A very inspiring man. Good luck with the chain - hope it works for you! :-)

    Caducean Whisks is happy to report that Cobweb has now allowed the Spice Girls on the verandah. Bloomin' nippy out. If it snows, I hope they'll be allowed inside the house.

    Sadie H I have a hunch that if you haven't heard back from agents by the three week mark of their 8 to ten week envelope of getting back to you then that's it, they're not interested. I just think that they always have their eye out for something special all the time - whether it's an eye catching novel title in the email title or a pitch that really resonates in the cover letter. Well that's what my intuition keeps telling me anyway...

      Janeshuff The agents who asked to see my MS did it well after three weeks, so I don't think that is true.

    Dear AlanP It was my fault as I inadvertently set the camera to raw only. A manager at work managed to get me some John Lewis vouchers that I was owed from years back. I used them to get a Sony A7 camera as Sony gave a cash back. deal It is a ...

    i had queried this about an aunt's diary. She was quite a gossip and I might be sued by half of South London! But what MsWhisks says is right. A descendant could only sue if the comment had caused some financial damage, In this particular case, ...
