    Your worst habit?
    In writing terms? Writing sentences that have more commas than words. In non-writing terms? My nails do get whittled down when I'm thinking. I think the keratin intake is good for creativity.

    Too much celebrity and hype, but good books still get through

    What else do you want Word Clouders to know? eg: do you have 9 cats / like paragliding / eat nothing but tinned fish / work in the bath / live in Kettering?
    I am an NHS drone with a wife and two cats. I am an attempted vegan, but don't hold that against me, I still can't help but savour the odd cheesy morsel. I like to boulder and to badminton but never at the same time, though this could be even better...

    I can highly recommend Red Sister! But I even highlier (that's a word now) recommend the 'Broken Empire Trilogy' and 'The Red Queen's War' trilogy - slightly related as there are entries written from female perspectives!

    A Twitter comment from my current favourite author (Mark Lawrence). He was was asked... 'how did you find writing female characters?' and he responded 'I didn't try to write female characters, I just wrote characters.' I think people try too hard ...

    "TheWeyMan" commented on Squidge's Blog "On writing the opposite sex...".
    Is it easier to write from the opposite sex's perspective in third person? And to answer his question, I said exactly what a man with two penises would say when asked if he dresses to the left or to the right... 'Yes.' But no, I don't know the ...

    Townhouse being free from the get go would save a lot of cloud-based boycotting. If there is a possibility it may become free in the future, and you are open to this, why not save those who have made this community what it is? Starting from ...

    That's what I was thinking John, surely it makes sense! Really it makes sense to have a free forum and the rest of the site paid for, what better way to promote your services than have a linked open forum? ... this would be a step in the right ...

About

I have finished writing my first book, which is out for scrutiny as I type (a thriller called 'Kept in the Dark'). Hopefully, this will be ready to send out to agents soon... after I put it through some more rigorous editing.

As a novice, I'm not yet sure what my genre forte is, so I have started writing a new fantasy novel called 'Craft'. I don't necessarily want to find my niche, but I'll keep testing new waters while I have the patience.

    Another social go glitch. It seems to give me a birthday every four months. I know they say time passes quicker as you get older, but that is ridiculous!

    The Word Cloud thinks it's your birthday, but it's notorious for getting it wrong. If it is. Happy Birthday!
