Well, I am feeling kind of emotional right now.
I just completed the final draft of my book and am about to send it off to be edited.
This book has been on-going since November 2011, and has gone through four different drafts.
An emotional rollercoaster is an understatement.
I have laughed and cried. And even just today, I started laughing while I was crying.
I really like fountain pens. I would go as far as to say I LOVE fountain pens.
I love how they write, how they look and how they feel in the hand.
They have changed my writing experience immensely.
Now, I don’t always use my laptop, sometimes i just sit with a notebook and pen, and let my mind wander.
And that is what I did today…..
Just a quick Post!
I just saw the new James Bond novel is out in the UK on the 26th September.
It is being written, by request of the Fleming estate, by William Boyd.
It is going to be set in 1969, and feature a 45 year old bond.
When I think back back to being a child, the one thing that always brings a smile to my face is Roald Dahl.
From whizzbangers to everlasting gobbstoppers. from snozzcumbers to bellypoppers, he took my childhood and turned it into a magical place.
A place where good giants blew dreams into your bedroom windows and saved you from nasty giants which would gobble you up.
Factories that created fantastical sweets filled with a new race of small people who sang songs as they worked. Witches who ran sweet shops, and children who were smarter and quicker than the “big” people that were out to get them.
But a recent survey has shown that Roald Dahl is no longer one of the favourite authors, with children favouring Harry Potter, Percy Jackson and Vampires.
