DebE —  June 30, 2011 — Leave a comment

So, it doesn’t look as though Chapter 14 will be finished this week. Here are my numbers for the week: 22, 30, 0, -412 & 115 (the last being today, so you never know, it might change!). Why? Because I self-edit as I go. I move forth to write something and some other part of my brain says “Stop! No, not good enough”, and I have to either delete what I’ve put or, if I’m lucky, I just continue to look at a blank screen… actually, a screen with my previous writing efforts. Sure, I let a certain standard slide, because I know that I will go back for the real editing later. But if it’s something in the bones of the story then it can’t go down. So, that is why so slow. I guess my Llewella-Braph chemistry just isn’t flowing as naturally as I would like. And then there is the other matter… but I’ll leave you to read that when I finally put it out there.




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.
