DebE —  June 5, 2012 — 2 Comments

Right, yes … So, I have a ton of fun stuff to say, but I think it’s all been said by other people, so I just feel like I’m copying.

Basically, I was just noticing that it’s been a while since I posted here, and thought people might want to know if I’m still breathing. I am, despite my cold bugs’ best efforts. So, yay!

So, where I’m at:

Over on Jottify Wow is being plugged for a third time by the lovely Sonya Lano. What does that mean? It means that someone likes my story. Which is nice. Getting a little positive feedback is nice. I don’t have anyone close to me interested in reading my stuff, hence why I fling my net on the ‘net. I think I have a couple of readers on writing.com, too, but they don’t talk to me (but, every new chapter I put up gets exactly 2 views within about half a day – often less). Anyway, that’s probably really boring to most of you, so I’ll skip any more.

Basically, I haven’t been up to much. Got struck by a dreaded lurgy in time for the long weekend (Queen’s Birthday here in good ol’ NZ), so that put a dampner on doing much – that and the coooold. It’s offically winter here, now. Snow to sea level expected here in Dunedin tonight. Brrr. We live at 130m. Not high, but if it goes to sea level it will be high enough. Dunedin is a hilly city – having been built over a dead volcano – so, when it snows, it can get quite tretcherous. Also, it doesn’t snow all that badly all that often, so we don’t have a major contingency plan, other than “stay at home”. What I mean is, we get one or two snow days (snow low enough and heavy enough to bring the city to a standstill … and, for us, “heavy enough” can be and inch or two) every few years.

And, now I stop here .. because WordPress ate my POST! Lesson: don’t write a really long (and entertaining) post directly into WP … because it will then forget who you are and ask you to log in and forget what you wrote. Crap.

Maybe one day I will tell you about my knee. But, obviously, tonight is not that time. It was a pretty entertaining and tragic tale. But, oh well. That’s WP. Thanks a lot.




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.

    I can’t tell you how many times WP has eaten my posts. It’s annoying. I basically type it in Notepad and paste it, now.

    What’s with your knee, eh?


      Ah well … maybe I should recount that tale, then, huh? I must admit, though, that my telling after a couple of bourbons was probably more interesting than my usual tone. I might have to see if I can recapture that “voice” sometime …

Wanna talk about it?
