After weeks of wrestling with my never-ending-short-story-set-on-a-cruise-ship, I finally typed The End at the weekend, yaayyyyyy! This was supposed to be an exercise in writng a 15k word novella. I failed. It ended up being a 44k (and would probably end up longer once I'm done with edits!) Sigh. So if there's one thing I've learnt with this process, it's this - I can't write short *double sigh*
But I'm happy, happy, happy to be done with this ms.
While it's in the "breathing" stage, I thought I'd give my blog a makeover (that's the 'new beginning' in case you're wondering). It's something else I've been toying with for a while and as I've been told, it's good to reward yourself for goals achieved.
Also, what better way to freshen up a blog than with some man eye-candy?
Thanks to Jo C Minx, who's been extolling the virtues of Brother & Sisters, I've fallen in love with Matthew Settle. Isn't he yummy? .
What do you think? You like? Huh? The new look, I mean, not the man candy. Okay, go on, you can tell me if you like him too!
Have a great week, everyone! And besides Minx Lorraine's In Too Deep and Minx Jo P's Sequins & Secrets, be sure to look out for more Minx entries, coming soon to the New Voices Contest.
