Catching up again

That 5am finish Sunday night/Monday morning didn’t do me any good at all. I went to bed and was up just 5 hours later. I had a busy but steady rest of day, concentrating mostly on the new website. Thanks to everyone who’s responded with feedback so far. I think I’m more or less happy with it now and will use some of my Christmas money to pay for my old domain back.

I still have a couple of pages to add to it and am contemplating things like news & events, competitions, a more detailed book page, hints & tips. I don’t want too many tabs, though, so some may become sub-pages of others. I think the colours are a bit raspberry ripple ice cream, but for the moment I’m happy with those too.

Do keep the feedback coming, and any suggestions as they occur.

[ALERT: faint-hearted look away now]

Today I’m slowly catching back up with work again. My recent flurry looking for work has worked well. I have:

  • a novel to proof-read
  • a historical novel to edit
  • a DVD script to write

I also have:

  • seven more novels on their way for proof-reading
  • a non-fiction on its way for proof-reading

And, of course, there’s:

  • a non-fiction anthology to collate
  • a non-fiction book proposal to update and finalise
  • interviews to arrange
  • at least 1 filler to write
  • at least 1 article to write
  • at least 1 short story to write (of 6)
  • novel work
  • study work
  • all the other daily stuff

I’ll probably have a steady session looking at the diary, and then I need to stick to the diary. I have a few appointments I mustn’t forget.


While I’m collating the Baggins Bottom Best Bits book I’ll be taking down some of the older blog posts from public view.

But first … some gentle diary work, I think.

    I was on swoon alert but this was one of your ‘shorter’ lists!
    I love the ideas for the website.
    Good luck with it.

    I love the look on the blog now — awesome.

    As usual, you’re busy and sound really happy. Yay!

      Thank you. The blog’s temporary, just for the current festive period. On 6 January it will have another new look.

    Good grief you are going to be busy, hope you manage to get some time to enjoy yourself as well. Really like the new website 🙂

      I prefer to be busy, and I get every evening and weekend off. Or most of the time. 😉
