A lot (as always) has happened this week, but next week sees me quietly stepping away from my children's books and back to my grown up books. My head is whirring with excitement as I have been away from these stories for too long and I cannot wait to open up my work-in-progress and reread the opening chapters (trying not to cringe too much at the crudeness of the writing at this stage!). I am also starting a new short story for a writing competition, one that will be (I hope) quite emotional. All in all, a busy and exciting week (weeks) ahead.
My week in blogland, writerland and creativeland...
- Started at the Oscars and ended up with puke. Quite a range of doodles this week >
- Completed my waterlily canvases and now ready to embrace (gingerly tackle) a giant canvas... Which do you think I should go 'big' with? >
- Teal was this week's #colour_collective challenge. Meet my teal-infused exotic birds >
- Flash back to the fair and Dog Blog... all on my Stories and Stuff blog >
- Most visited posts on my blogs were babies and orangutans. Take a look >
- and last, but by no means least, my manuscripts have been posted out for submission.... eeeeeeek!
