It’s the waiting that’s a killer…

| March 26, 2010

Everything on my life right now seems to depend on waiting. To give you an idea, I am selling a flat and waiting to hear from potential buyers after viewing, waiting to hear interview results, and on top of that I have two novels currently sitting with publishers and agents. So as I checked my […]

Articles and More

| March 25, 2010

After real life got in the way yesterday, I’m now back to writing articles on Bukisa. Porting my old game reviews is taking longer than I thought – not least because my writing style and voice has changed over the years so instead of a direct port, I am re-writing them. Great for search engine […]

A feline opinion…

| March 23, 2010

Well after all the rejections I took the plunge and went overseas with no.3. Now I’m just waiting to hear back, which is not good for my nerves. The temptation to just stop writing and snuggle in front of the TV with icecream is very, very, strong. However I can’t.I am currently facing a huge […]

A small problem and an injury

| March 22, 2010

I’ve been feeling a bit light headed all day. Despite that I got everything done and finally slumped in front of my PC about half an hour ago. Which was when I touched my head and pulled away a red hand. And then I remembered what I’d done at the weekend and that there was […]

Frustrations of writing

| March 20, 2010

There’s an issue with novel #3.I have a complete manuscript.My writing group loved it.An editor said that he was having trouble editing it because he kept reading it. A fan club and regular article readers who liked the concept and signed up to be notified if it was published. I have a marketing plan, distribution […]

I’ve completed two more lenses, on the Hawker Hunter and Folland Gnat, but have also been having a look at Squidoo’s new options for the sidebar.My Hammond Innes lens have just got a full revamp, including these modules. Overall I’d have to say I like them, although having them show up in the Table of […]

Rejection, and a confidence boost?

| March 17, 2010

Another form rejection, so I’ve sent it out to a new set of agents and cast my net a bit further a field this time. After checking the Association of Authors Agents lists I found four who appear to take this kind of thing – and who oddly aren’t in the Writers and Artists Yearbook. […]

No news is good news?

| March 8, 2010

Anti Stress Therapy – Tin SignBuy at AllPosters.comNo real updates, but reviewing the current state of play it is interesting.  Every agent who has rejected (aside from the one who sent me someone else’s rejection slip, and the interesting one I got last week) has said there is no market for the genre in Britain. […]

An email problem – and technorati oddness

| March 3, 2010

I’ve just found out that the reason I have not received my emails from several sources over the past few months is that emails through that provider are not arriving. Effectively it is a dead email address.This took some tracking down as emails sent from my own IP address or webmail address get through. Unfortunately […]

A week for it?

| March 2, 2010

And on the e-commerce front, I’ve just had two scammers to deal with in 24 hours. Strangely enough, like most companies, the one I work with does not commit:1) Customs fraud2) Postal Fraud3) Visa fraudor in fact any form of fraud. So why on earth we’d get requests to do all of the above in […]
