When The Voices Stop

I end up on my blog.

I know it’s bad when even Facebook and Twitter hold no allure.

So I decide to read instead and can’t enjoy the story for one of two reasons:

a. Constant, unintended copyediting caused by my week in the editing cave OR

b. I fall into the ‘this is great therefore my writing sucks’ trap.


I think I burnt my brain out this week. Or possibly this could be the reason:

I’m sure the voices will be back soon. Undoubtedly around 3am in the morning.

Welcome to my new blog


As if I don’t have enough to do, I have decided to start blogging too!

In between running a home-based business and looking after three children I somehow find time to write.

I took the plunge this year and completed NaNoWriMo (for the uninitiated that is writing a 50,ooo+ word novel in one month). It was the kickstart I needed and I am now editing my novel, determined to finish what I started.

So Eternal Vigilance, a YA paranormal romance is looking for a home. More on that to follow…

I’ve been spending a lot of time hopping around blogs and have found some fantastic resources, some of which I will share on here once I work out how.

Meanwhile, back to editing editing editing. When I have time.
