    The website looks really great, Tfx. And the line about being a man is a great, crooked hook!

    Wow, that's the most comments I've seen on a post for a long time! Just to say, in law terms, you cannot say what you like. You can think what you like but the moment you say it (even just on the street) and someone hears it and is 'harassed, ...

    "Ele" commented on Tony's Blog "How much do you base your characters on real people?".
    I've only based characters on some very superficial characteristic of someone I know a little - like a guy I often see on the bus who talks REALLY loudly, or a teacher at my children's school who is deathly serious. And just that one characteristic ...

    Thanks Jen. A chiropractor couldn't do anything anyway but thanks for the thought! I need a neuro physio but nothing's quick with the NHS! Have a lovely time with all the lovely Cloudies.

    Hello Jen. Won't be coming to Oxford - sob! I've been having back problems and / or neuro trouble so sitting / walking / everything (wah!) is exhausting. I really hope we can meet up one day. Maybe York 2015?!

    Hello J. It's layers of Chinese ink on very thin Chinese paper. One wrong move and disaster - hence quite a few splodges!

    Yes, I agree Daeds. Life is too short. Yes, I know that's unoriginal to say - but it's true. After my dad died, I had such a clarity of thinking and I've tried to never let it go. With my own health on a wobble, I'm forcing myself not to keep ...

About

Having had scenes revolving around my head for about a year, I decided enough was enough and I should write them down. I found I couldn't stop writing and before long I had a story, part autobiography, part fiction. After several rewrites and lots of editing, I've turned that story into my first YA novel: The Lemon Sliced Moon.
I've created a website about my writing: www.writinglark.weebly.com

    Hi Ele, thanks for your nice message. Book will be published officially on 27 Feb but there might be some copies sneaking into shops before then... and my copies are due in the post any day now, can't wait to get my hands on them. How's your writing going? What are you up to?

    I'll try Ele! It's almost on the way out already to be honest. Maybe it's not right yet. Have you joined the meet up page? so many lovely Cloudies will be going (including moi!). Maybe you could do a day trip from Bath?! sounds (in theory) close enough. It would be so lovely to meet you- I'm not doing York so this is pretty much it for me in terms of meeting fellow Cloudies this year! and the best bit is Mr. Jen will have to take child three to ballet, child two to football and hear child one moan on and on and do all the childcare all weekend ;) x

    Ele - that's such good news about starting book two - is it a sequel to book one? and book one is on the move too with that course! that's so good. I *think* I may have a tentative idea for my first book. It's kind of like a wisp of smoke at the moment though and may disappear any moment unless some other thoughts come forward soon. Tired too though - maybe it's the cold and rain! All the bugs going around? Yes an auntie to baby Alastair now! And please tell me you are coming to Oxford in March, would love to see you :)

    Exciting Ele! I'm sure it's going to be good news. I read some of it in your site and I was very impressed by the quality and also read the tips on writing for that age range (having just finished the Hunger games trilogy it all made a lot of sense!) No, didn't enter Fish. Last 'season' I did Mslexia (2 stories), Bridport (2 stories) and Costa and thought better of going again without new material. Maybe next year huh? I'm kind of done with shorts for a while (apart from Alan's comp). I hanker for a novel now, something to really push me! let me know what Chicken house lady says!! x
