    Thanks - for the comp is a fun way to practise my writing and I agree it is fun and always interesting to see the different ways people interpret the same theme.

    Thanks L. My first go at the monthly comp. Not quite sure how it all works but willing to learn :-) Interesting how everyone has a different take on the theme. Loved yours, great ending!

    L. This month comp entry didn't turn out at all how I expected. Always nice when a story takes charge, and decides what it needs.

    "L." commented on Squidge's Blog "Creating characters".
    Bella, I think the film you are referring to is Ex-Machina. Creating characters, especially MC is like slipping inside a skin for me, which I think, is why I tend to write in the 1st POV.

    "L." commented on Squidge's Blog "Creating characters".
    Yes, I agree. I've been told and I do believe that if you want to stay in the character's voice then the landscape seen out of a window by a dying person, would be seen/described differently then through the eyes of a newlywed.

    L. I have a message from John Alty: "it was nice knowing you all", but he is now confined to the 403-error-message-Davy-Jones-Locker, unsure how to escape its murky depths. Ahoy, sailor!

      TheWeyMan It may work if he tries to access through a proxy. Try entering the website address into www.proxysite.com it should bypass the error. Hopefully...

      Philippa Er, L. Are you stalking me? First it was 'My Absolute Darling'. Now it's 'Lullaby.' I keep reading the same books as you! (Er, so maybe I'm stalking you). Love that we have the same taste!

      Philippa Haven't read it yet! I'm saving it for emergencies (when I run out of library books and the library is closed till Monday). I read the opener in a train station bookshop and got hooked. Just finished my absolute darling. It was a hard read, but quite an amazing book.

      L. I loved My Absolute Darling, very brutal but such an amazing read and beautiful prose. I'm curious to know what you think of Lullaby once you've read it. I discussed it with my CW tutor and her mum had very similar opinions to mine.
