Hello. It’s nice to be back, finally! Had a few busy months there and didn’t have time to blog.
I really enjoyed participating in NaNoWriMo (National November Writing Month) last year. It pushed my boundaries and made me focus. It was fun, as well as a bit stressful, trying to get the word count every day. Unfortunately, due to work commitments, house duties and family dramas etc, I didn’t get to complete the 50 000 words but I was very pleased with the effort I put in to get my 25 000 word count. I also have lots more ideas of where my story is going to go so will continue to work on it during the year.
I’ve just finished reading Marian Keyes’ “The Women who Stole my Life” (I bought it for a friend but had to read it first!! :)) and it was excellent. She’s one of my favourite authors and I’ve read most of her books. If you’re looking for a bit of a pick-me-up, this book is for you. It’s lots of fun with some drama and romance too. Marian Keyes has a way with words and can make something totally non-significant into something very funny. Her characters are engaging and say the funniest things. I was laughing out loud.
Here’s a bit of the blurb:
“One day, sitting in traffic, married Dublin mum Stella Sweeney attempts a good deed. The resulting car crash changes her life. For she meets a man who wants her telephone number (for the insurance, it turns out). That’s okay. She doesn’t really like him much anyway (his Range Rover totally banjaxed her car).”
Other books by Marian Keyes: Sushi for Beginners, This Charming Man, Angels, Rachel’s Holiday, Lucy Sullivan is getting Married.
