    Are you perhaps one of those Whisks, who can plan it and begin it , then allow it all go to head in what ever direction it wants to go? never mind what you wrote to get it off the ground. Maybe you just need to look at it with different eyes and ...

    Oh, and the show 'Neighbours' did a famous poem about a teabag swirling around then put out to pasture - something rather more poetic than that but it was a very very long time ago. :)

    Wow, I love the comments on this blog as much as the subject itself. I agree with everyone else. Break a plot down to it's skeleton and there are thousands 'similar' not 'same'. Write your story - I was told once many years ago that 'no writing is ...

    Oh Deads. That does sound like an awful experience. After all the heartache etc I think I would be tempted to even borrow the money and buy the rights back. £2,500 dollars or pounds is a lot of money but it is possible to claw it back. Surely? I ...

    Mind you, on reflection, you can nitpic all you like on your work, someone else will always find something they don't like, - a way you've phrased something, you've used too many words, you've used too few words, I would do this, and I would do ...

    If I may put my tuppence worth in. I end up playing with words, stripping a sentence down and I remove the important words and delete the rest and ask myself 'what am I trying to say. I like ' flickering torches, horsemen raced off, engulfing ...

    Hi Nibs, no, I'm not feeding Woody dog food - not biscuits, anyway. He foraged that one all by himself - who knows where from?!

    Hi Nibs. Thanks for encouraging mail. I am so pleased that you are seeing more clearly! Wonky vision is really scary. Thank goodness for caring nurses.
    Have scan on Tuesday - start the gunk meds tonight! Good thing I wrote it on here or I would forget again!
    Healing vibes to you. TLC for yourself and I will give some to me.
    I went to a church concert last night - it would have been easier not to go but it was worth making the effort just to see/inhlae the blue in the magnificent stained glass window. I have been in that town for 25 years and never been into the church - I am used to a village parish church so was quite bowled over by the size of the window. The first part of the evening was not so good but the Goodall's Requiem was very moving.
