Suffering for my Art – stop laughing!

I know that sounds very pretentious and I am only kidding.  But, I have been suffering – still am as you know, and writing is pure agony.  The Art bit comes in because I have been writing in spite of it all – I can hear a big moan coming from somewhere! Actually it is painful sitting for any length of time and typing hurts like hell, but I got sick of not writing and not getting on with things, so  believe it or not, I completed my part of my co-written book two weeks ago.  I got to write The End.  What a sense of achievement and relief. It is now out of my hands for the time being and I have 3 more to complete – on my own this time – before the year is over.  So I shall be spending more time with ‘Ms Birdsong’ as she ‘Investigates’ and with some luck she will solve the crimes soon and I can then move on to completing ‘God’s Waiting Room’. More information with photographs is available about these two books – in previous postings here, and if you click on About – just under the banner.  Lots to read there, and of course under Blog lots more to read there…so click away, have a browse and let me know your thoughts. I have to complete another book I’ve been working on, ‘It’s A Long Way To Tipperary’ […]

Very Inspiring Blogger Award

I’d like to thank Suzie Tullett  http://suzietullett.blogspot.com     for nominating me for this lovely award.  It is such a fab thing to have happen. Suzie is author of ‘Going Underground’ and her latest book, ‘Little White Lies and Butterflies’ is out now.  Do visit her blog and check her out. I have been nominated for several other Awards from fellow bloggers but (until now) I’ve not managed to post the Award or links.  What am I like!!  I’ll have a go at posting the others now that I think I have the hang of this. Anyway, I have to tell you 7 things about myself and then nominate other bloggers/authors  I want to receive the Award.  All they need to do then is link back to me, choose their nominees and answer 7 things about themselves and post links to their nominees…..simples! So 7 things about me which may surprise you, though I am sure you would have survived perfectly well without knowing: Once when on tour in the USA with a band, we were invited on to a US Air Force Base and into the Traffic Control Tower.  I got to ‘talk down’ several pilots; this meant instructing them to land on to the runway where they touch their wheels to the ground briefly before taking off again….without stopping.  They were doing dummy bombing and landing/take-off runs.  I seem to recall they were flying B52’s.  Such a thrill.  […]
