Wind, Rain, Cold and Writing

I could begin with – “It’s been a while since I posted,” but I’m worried the response would be, “Really?” 😂 So, I agreed to more hours at work, because they’re in the pooh, thought about ‘shit’ but I didn’t want to offend anyone. I received the final edit of ‘The Siege of Mr Khan’s Curry Shop’ and so now I’ve got to select 12 agents and write a synopsis. I’ve tried writing a synopsis and I’m beginning to wonder if it would be better to scrap the novel 😂

I started the second book and then I started a third. The third is completely different to anything I’ve done and so I’ve fallen in love. Anyway these are the reasons I’ve been quiet. Apart from the fact that I’ve not been anywhere, done anything or discovered anything.

Back to the title… I managed my third run this week, today. No – ankle isn’t better I just ignore it. But the yoga helps. 😁 It was two degrees, it poured down with rain, the wind nearly blew my pants off!

See – I said I had nothing to say 😂

    We all get busy. No doubt. It’s good to see you still running and doing yoga. The vision of the wind blowing your pants off made me chuckle. “Fred! Come to the window! I just saw a man, running in a blinding rain storm with no pants on! Bloody hell!”

    Love Kermit…

  8. Good to see you back, and to hear about the book’s progress. In my mind I always remember it as Mr Khan’s Chip Shop. I must make an effort to get it right.

    You were probably wise to substitute “pooh”, as it means you are more acceptable to a wider audience, who may want to buy your book. Me, I will join in the spirit of things and say that one of the pictures makes it look like you are being held up by a white stick shoved up your “bottom”. Or you are taking a prostate selfie…

    • Aww, thank you Quercus you always manage to make me laugh. Wether or not anyone buys the book could be in serious doubt at the moment. Synopsis V4 isn’t going well 😂 I’m so glad we write electronically these days. I doubt I could afford the paper years ago. Anyway thank you for your input 😁😁

  9. Always a pleasure. I watched the The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society last night. (Your title is far better, by the way.) The heroine was typing for a lot of it and it brought back so many bad memories of typing and tippex and wearing holes in the paper with those abrasive erasers. Word processors are so much better.

    When something isn’t going well, give it a rest, do something else, go back to it. And don’t listen to that destructive internal editor. Try writing it in the form of a limerick – that will get you back on track. 🙂
