The multi-faceted: The writer

“A great story is just too complex to pour out of your head as a fully nuanced whole without consideration, after the discovery of the story, of the mix.”

Check out this lovely post from Storyfix: Your Story: It’s All In The Mix

And, because it’s today, I am going to add my expression of sadness at the passing of Monkee, Davey Jones. I grew up playing music on a HMV 45 turntable, and we had a few Monkees singles that I loved to play and sing and dance to. “Steppin’ Stone” was a favourite of mine (I’ve always been partial to b-sides over singles) …

So, I’ve been quiet on here, again. Well, I have been writing my story, and planning my short story due in two weeks (eep!), and reviewing other people’s stories (first/revised drafts, and they have reviewed mine in kind, and wow, it’s been good) … Oh, and all the while I’ve been working, and entertaining, feeding, changing, blah blah, my toddler … and whatever else I do all day … What do I do all day? Honestly, half the time I forget. Right, back to it.




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.

    Yup… my darling wife was sad about Davy Jones. I said, “who?” That was before my time. Now, when Yes or Devo start dying off, I will be sad.


      Well, if we’re talking “time”, I guess mine should be the ’90s. But, half the good artists from then didn’t make it out of the ’90s in the first place … bummer.

Wanna talk about it?
