I get by with a little help from my friends

It can be tricky fitting creative work in around other work, including childcare and housework. You find the time and… nothing. You even know what you need to write about for the story to move forward, but how do you transition from the last scene to the new event? Well, sometimes it just pays to share your plan with someone else and let them help you find the right words. Here, I wish to thank my friend FanGirlLA for her assistance today. 740 words written this afternoon. It’s not huge, but it’s something… and there may still be time tonight to throw some more together later, once bubby is in bed.



Deb E was born in New Zealand’s North Island, but her parents corrected that within months, moving south to Dunedin and staying there. Childhood nights were spent falling asleep to cover versions of Cliff Richard and the Shadows and other Rock ’n Roll classics played by her father’s band, and days were spent dancing to 45 LPs. Many of her first writing experiences were copying down song lyrics. She graduated to scientific reports when she studied a nematophagus fungus in the Zoology department of the University of Otago, trading all traces of popularity for usefulness… then traded both for fiction. Mum of one human & four fur-babies.
