Publishing Challenge!

Welcome to 2022! And welcome to my challenge for the coming year. The publishing challenge blog post is supposed to be on a Monday, to coincide with my own publishing schedule. However, as yesterday was a bank holiday, I wasn’t at work. So I’m doing this week’s publishing challenge post today. See Chapter 1 here. Chapter 2 I had to have a play around with the current publishing challenge schedule. This is because I was really, really busy with ghostwriting […]

Blummin technology!

The new blog regime doesn’t officially start until the new year. That doesn’t stop me from practising, though and, so far, I’ve done a spreadsheet planner reminding me to write certain blog posts for certain days. Here’s how the blog post part is looking at the moment: Monday: write Tuesday’s blog post (might be Confessions of a Rebel Writer) Tuesday: write Wednesday’s weekly writing prompts Wednesday: write Thursday’s book review Thursday: write Friday’s Diary of a Tiger Friday: write Monday’s Publication […]

I told him I could start on Monday, and he sent over the next storyline and some tentative […]

Tuesday 3 September 2019

I’m getting used to the electronic diary, but it’s taking time. I keep wanting to look at something in my physical diary and then remembering that it’s on my phone or on the desktop. I finished the quick editing job yesterday morning and sent it back explaining that while I’m quite busy for the next few weeks I can still fit in a few quick, short jobs. This morning, a quick proofreading job landed in my in-box from him … […]

To defect or not?

I have been a Windows gal for as long as we’ve been using Windows. I remember when the first Microsoft products started to come out. I started off on WordStar for word processing and Lotus for spreadsheets, and I graduated to WordPerfect, which did everything I needed it to. I remember when the monopoly began. I was working for the National Grid at the time and we used WordPerfect and Lotus for everything. But these new things, Word and Excel, […]
