Ok, what’s been digging on down in the past week in ND’s life?

Well, last week I had a writing frenzy and wrote a chunk on a new WIP and also penned two short stories. I’ve subbed both the shorts and must get back to the longer book. I know where I want it to go, so that’s cool, it’s just that I have some WIPs on my mind. I know I must finish them but, you know what? I just don’t want to. I’ve not been in the mood to write them for a long time. Every so often I’ll add a few hundred words, but beyond that...meh, they’re just not doing it for me at the moment. So, they can stay in a file until the urge to write them comes back—if it ever does.

I was 38 yesterday. I don’t usually mention my birthday, but this year I decided to stop being such a pleb and smile on the day I was born. I let Facebook pronounce the day I arrived in this world and was staggered by the amount of birthday greetings I received. Amazing. I spent the day writing one of those shorts I mentioned. I was going to read, but I did that today instead. I’ve been reading a couple of series for the Miz Love site and I’m loving them both. Anny Cook’s Mystic Valley Series and Lynne Connolly’s Richard and Rose series. Both amazing sets of books, and once I come to the end of these sets I’m going to be lost.

I went on a raid-the-sales spree with my eldest daughter on Friday. We had much fun in town pretending we were rich and only looking at the sales racks to pass the time, when really we were rooting around for lots of bargains. We found some, oh yes indeed, and had a great time.

And that’s about it, really. What have you been up to?
