On Waiting for Feedback *bites nails* #writerslife

I have one book finished!

I finished it last year, and I should have celebrated, but it’s finished with pending edits. I’ve been waiting for other half to give it a friendly read, and last week he put it on his kindle.

It’s a lot of self control to not bombard him with questions, but has been reading it and says he’s enjoying it, so yay!

Now all that needs to happen is for a) for him to finish reading it and b) for time to miraculously appear so that he can reread it on a word doc and edit it, so I can move on to the next phase- working through his edits, and then the one after that- getting other people to read it for the test phase.

Still, it’s another hurdle being hurdled.

How do you deal with your waiting for feedback nerves?

If You’re Happy and You’re Nerdy

It’s been a while, but I have once more made a thing.

Here it is, look at it in all it’s glory.

It’s on shirts and stuff if you’re interested in that sort of thing.

On Changing your World- #writerslife

My WIP has been worked on for quite some time now. I pretty much have the story nailed down, but I’d never been happy with the setting.
Better late than never, my brain has finally come up with the ideal landscape.

What this basically means is that a mere eight chapters from completely finishing the book I now have to go back to the beginning and change or tweak things.

Luckily for me I don’t think I need to change all that much, but still, it would have been nice for the story and the world to have appeared fully formed in my mind, rather than my derpy brain giving me all the answers I need right at the end.

Still, writer’s life I guess.

Has anyone else had this happen?

Conquering Garway Hill!

We were feeling a bit unwell, so we decided to get out into the fresh air, and you know, ponies happened.

When Good Lambs go Baaa!

Look at the cute little lambs, aren’t they ever so cute?
Also includes an adorable baby bunny!

We Climbed a Mountain!

Fools that we are, we decided to climb a mountain!

It’s called Pen y Fan, as you may have guessed from the name it’s in Wales. Not Whales.

It’s absolutely stunning on the top of the mountain, and it’s a pretty easy climb too.

Highly recommended!

Happy National Tea Day!

Happy National Tea Day!

I wasn’t going to post today, but well, how could I not post about national tea day?

Tea is my go to beverage, it’s what I wake up with, it’s what keeps me going through the day, and because I’m British it’s practically mandatory that I adore it.

I have been fixed up with a tea man, Monteas, he does some wonderful teas. I’m addicted to the Assam and also the Chocolate and Mint Roobois.

What is your tea of choice?

 

Fairy Complaints- They look so cute and are so hard done by

The Fairy Song

Another video throwback from when we were trying out new filming and CGI techniques. My other half had this wonderful idea of a fairy union in which fairies complain about being treated as pests. In it I am turned into a fairy, and forced to sing the fairy song.

 

Kitty Jay (A Film About a Ghost Story)

Kitty Jay’s Grave- Dartmoor Ghost Legend

So, a while back my other half and I started playing around with a vlogging channel, we made a few vids and left it alone. Recently we decided to set up again, we wanted to try new things, see new things, and we thought, why not film it?

This film is about the legend of Kitty Jay, we filmed it back in 2010.

I would like to reassure you now, there is nothing buried there but horse bones, but to this day people tell tales of Kitty, and the flowers that are left on her grave.

We, being local to the area at the time, decided to dramatise it. Of course, because I was the female counterpart, I automatically bagged the role of Kitty.

Any of you use Teespring? What are your thoughts?

I’ve just set up a Teespring account

I wanted to know what it was like, what the ups and downs or pitfalls of it are.

I would be grateful if anyone had any advice or tips for using this service, or what your experience has been either as a customer or seller of goods.

Here is my store front, if you want to take a look and let me know what I could be doing differently.

I have set up two of my punniest creations as experiments to see what they will do, but like I say, any advice would be appreciated.
