DebE —  June 20, 2011 — Leave a comment

Yep, that’s how we write dates here in NZ. And I celebrate the fact that we go from smallest to largest (measure of time), so there.

216 words today. Not super productive in writing terms. But, I did a part-time job that earns a little money, I put up a few more posts on my other blog (which is cool if you are interested in music), and I interacted with my son (a good thing for a mum to do, huh? I think so). Writing the start of Chapter 13, which (if you’re up to date) you can probably guess is about to have a fairly decent confrontation between Jonas and Braph… well, I hope you’d guessed that. Hardly a spoiler, in my opinion, anyway. My point here is that it is meant to be a pretty action-packed, and pivotal scene, so it is imperative that I get it right – as close to perfect as I can in a first draft. So, do you know what I think I should do? Sleep on it. Try to get my sub-conscious working for me. So that is what I am gonna do. And then tomorrow, I should have time to do a little writing in the morning, and possibly even the afternoon! Woo.

Listening to: the rhythm of the dishwasher. It was really cool. Sounded like someone playing a funky rhythm on some bongo drums. But it has started a new part of its cycle now. Less cool. Oh, back to it again (about 2mins later)… awesome. OK, I think it might be bedtime.

Oops, nearly forgot! Vote for me! I really wanna get some pictures up on here!




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.
