About Me

My photo
Hi, welcome to my blog, I am a writer of short stories, children's and YA novels . An acceptance from People's Friend finally made me a published writer! Yeah, happy days! I have since had stories published in The Weekly News and The Last Laugh anthology. My main love is writing children's/YA novels...I'm now enduring a fruitless search for an agent... I also draw and paint, I like to draw animals (usually my adorable crazy cats!)Occasionally famous people and motorcycles.

Spring Cleaning

I seem to have had a lapse in writing efforts, both blogging and short story wise. I've not got around to doing the re writes I was talking about. Well, I've done one actually, but I'm still not happy with it, so that's not going anywhere yet.
I could do with a creative episode, just lately I'm too easily distracted.
I'm in a spring clean mood at the moment, but am very frustrated because I haven't yet bought the paint etc to revamp. I've just had to make do with cleaning stuff. I'm a bit fed up to be honest. I've had a bit of a clear out, but somehow seem to have more clutter than when I started!
Although, it has been nice to see a bit of sunshine lately, I even wore my sandals today! It wasn't a great idea, my legs were freezing, it isn't summer yet is it?
I could do with a spring clean in my head, I think.


  1. Sometimes, if the words don't flow, we all need to take a bit of a break.

    Know what you mean about clear outs...there was a man in Aberystwyth who died at home when he was buried under an avalanche of his own clutter. I just know that's how I'm going to go because however much I tidy, the piles just seem to get bigger.


  2. Hi Suzanne

    The poor guy in Aberystwyth, what a way to go!
    From now on, I'll keep a watchful eye on that pile of books in the corner.


  3. I need to have a jolly good clear out as well, but I keep getting distracted by the writing. Oh well, I'm sure I'll do it one day.

  4. I think Suzanne is right that we all need a break from writing every so often. You'll get back to it when you're ready. Meanwhile enjoy the sunshine!

  5. Hi Helen, you're doing great with your writing, that spring cleaning can wait!

    Hi Joanne
    Thanks, I think that's true. It was quite sunny today, but when I went out for a walk, it was actually freezing!(well not actually freezing, but pretty damn cold) More sun please!


I appreciate all your comments, thank you!
