I have the new house… I have the internets… I have the passion, the excitement, the drive… I mostly have the energy…

BRING ON THE WRITING 😉

After having spent weeks moving into our new house I was looking forward to some much needed writing. Alas, after a fateful night of lost power, faulty equipment and marine aquarium based nightmare I’m afraid this is all I can manage right now sorry. However, forthcoming will be more about my work, some juicy flash fiction and more about the writers I am fortunate enough to call friend 🙂 Take a look.

Thank you 🙂

How Do You When You Haven’t in a While???

Evening lovely readers 🙂

I hope you’re all well. Happy New Year 🙂 As you know it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. Alas, what can only be described as a family packed Christmas and frankly Hellish New Year got in the way. I have however managed to get all the edits done on my novel and gotten it back to my editor. Yay right? 🙂 Well yes but this presents me with a whole new set of circumstances I’ve not been in for a while. I now have the burning, eternally nagging desire to write the second in the series…….

My first novel Incarnate, now happily nestled in the arms of my cracking editor, is for want of a better phrase my baby. No matter how many times it gets sent back to me I’ll work on it and work on it until some lovely publisher can’t live without it. There’s no problem there. But you see, I’ve been working on that story for nine years give or take six and a half years of disastrous time with my ex fiancè and no desire to write what so ever. My beloved characters are now so very firmly set in the events of my first novel that to be honest I’m finding it hard to start the second one. I know where I must begin but what if my ability to re-establish my protagonist suffers due to my inability to get past the first story? What if my scene setting is no longer believable? (Though I do write fantasy lol). These are the thoughts that plague me.

Others were I know how to begin it but I don’t; I know what I want my characters to do but how do I portray that? Do I use tried and true techniques like dreams or go for a bit of realism? Should the magic kick everything off or should we have a nice, meaty battle to begin? These questions are neither here nor there to be honest though, I do love a challenge 🙂 I guess I’m just trying to portray to you my happiness in continuing to write and carrying on with a story as close to my heart as my own little family is. Hence the erratic flow of thought and endless questions 🙂

Anyway I’m off to at least try to continue. I think I’ll do a book review tomorrow. Toodles 🙂

Coming Soooonnnnnnnnn

Evening lovely readers 🙂

This is just a quick post to say I do have two posts ready to be published for your enjoyment. However, rather stupidly, I have embibed too much cider (mmmm, cider) and I want to check the posts when sober to make sure I don’t sound too much like a plonker 🙂 It’s that bad I’ve checked and rechecked this post several times. So thank you for your patience and see you tomorrow 🙂

Emotions and Over-sensitivity

Evening lovely readers 🙂

As you may have noticed it’s been a whole entire week since my last post. I have to apologise: this is because I am a little old lady in disguise… anyhoo this isn’t a venty post. Well not really. Well maybe a little. Okay, okay it’s a giant venty post lol. It’s just I’ve begun to wonder if others suffer from over-sensitivity and if it’s linked to writing; does it even have a place within the literary World?

If I were to relate this feeling to real life I would more describe it as a deluded sense of empathy towards others. I say deluded because I have no blummin clue what people are feeling or even thinking really. I will say sometimes I’ve been right especially when a close friend has been sad and upset but on the whole I wonder if it’s sensitivity just tinged with a healthy dose of paranoia crossed with my wonderful and much loved creative imagination. Put me in a room with people where there’s a history, where perhaps one person has done something that affects all the rest, then that whole deluded concoction will make me turn all the tension back on me even if it has nothing to do with me. It’s troublesome in that respect, for which I’m truly sorry, but wonderful in others.

My over-sensitivity, or as I call it my deluded empathy, I feel is handy in my writing. I’m quite proud of the fact that I feel I can relate to the emotions of a character. Granted when I well up at an ending I have written myself I may be taking it a bit too far. Technically it helps with the writing too as I feel sensitive to what I actually write, causing me to edit frequently, and to be aware of my language use. I find that each aspect of it helps in its own way and I love it all, being unwilling to apologise for that at least.

As you can see it’s a double edged sword providing both creativity and sadness. Do you find you suffer with this? I’m very proud of my writing but find some techniques just aren’t transferable to the real World.

Thank you 🙂

Happy Birthday to My Favorite Dilettante!

A truly talented and wonderful Lady; a genius such as this should always be celebrated. One of my very favourite Ladies to be sure 🙂 Happy birthday Helena 🙂

A little birdie (well, actually, a big birdie) told me that today is Helena Hann-Basquiat’s birthday!  And what better way to celebrate her birthday than by heading over to Amazon and picking up one or all of her recent publications:

Memoirs of a Dilettante Volume One, available in both ebook and paperback.  I highly recommend the paperback.  The printed format is candy for the eyes.  If you are a fan of Helena’s blog (and how can you not be), then you will love having the adventures of Penny dammit, Countess of Arcadia and Helena all in one beautifully designed place.

Three Cigarettes, available as an ebook and only 99 cents.  By the way, I’ve read and reviewed Three Cigarettes and found it to be both thrilling and chilling.  Although Three Cigarettes was written by Jessica B. Bell, Helena was the editor.  More importantly, she is Jessica’s keeper and…

Positive PERUMAL November 18, 2015 Articles No Comments Do Detox Foot Patches Work? Science Says Yes! Do Detox Foot Patches Work? Science Says Yes! Do foot detox patches really work? This is a question a lot of people ask. I don’t blame them for being a skeptic as I used to be as well. It is very good to be doubtful and ask many questions. We live in a world were it seems to be opened season on consumers. So, is there evidence that detox foot patches work? we can confidently say yes! The visual proof after using detoxifying foot pads is credible. The improvement is obvious when used over several consecutive days. A highly accredited Environmental Laboratory, SRC Analytical Lab, analyzed multiple samples of foot pads. It discovered absorption into the pads of Arsenic, Mercury, Nickel and many others. detox-foot-patches-benefitsA syncrometer was used to analyze multiple pads for a number of folks. The syncrometer identified the following substances in the used pads: aluminum, arsenic, asbestos, benzene, cadmium, copper, DAB dye, fast green dye, isopropyl alcohol, lead, methyl alcohol, mercury, nickel, sudan black dye, thallium, and a plastic byproduct. Scientists analyzed the hair of people before and after the use of the detoxifying foot pads. The difference in levels of toxins was obvious. Japan scientists have conducted detailed research of foot pads using Thermography. They discovered that the pads are able to quicken circulation and thus the detoxification of the body. A study discovered that the cleansing foot pads increase the presence of alpha brain waves. These waves play a role in the healing and relaxation processes. There is one very important thing to keep in mind. You must be careful of cheap, fake detox foot patches. They usually contain lower quality or in some cases harmful substances. This is the principal reason why so many people did not achieve satisfying results with detoxifying foot pads.
