Still working…

… on Chapter 10. It’s an entirely brand new chapter – the last two were largely able to be brought forward from my old work. I have written about 1100 words today in stops and starts. So, I have already binned about 500 words with the intention of having another go at them tonight. It was a scene with a fairly intense bit of conversation/action and I think that sort of stuff flows better when I just sit down and get it out, rather than write a bit, get distracted, write a bit more, get distracted again… I mean, I can do a bit of editing like that, but if I want a scene to flow, I have to let it flow when I write it.

So, I would like to be able to add a like box to my Facebook page and possibly use my Amazon Affiliation. So, I think I might be going to look at moving this blog to another host. Something I will ponder. No hurry, and the actual writing is way more important than this.

I put this here when I didn’t have a paid WDC membership (thank you Anonymous for my current 3 months… and the last) and I wanted to share it with a particular person who was interested in keeping up with my progress. And then the AMP Do Your Thing thing came along and I realized that this is of some value to showcase what I’m working on for that purpose. As an added bonus, I just might manage to pick myself up a keen proof-reader or two.

Anyway, let’s see if I can make these 500 words up now that the baby is in bed & hubby is busy with some after hours work…



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.
