Wow... this site is full of psychos.
Just saw Jaclyn's review. Not bad.
So when's yours coming? Can't be long now. Don't forget to text me as soon as you get it, matey. Really curious to hear.
Good idea to incorporate bits of the hockey starlet story into W&G. I've done something similar with an unfinished short story I had about the bees that nested under our bath for a year.
My writing's coming out well, but it's very... s l o w. Being much more ruthless with editing too, want this to be much more spartan in style, so ditching all metaphors, similies and cliches and anything overly sentimental or obvious. Really pleased with it, just wish I could get more than an hour or two done a day. Some days I don't write a word. I was so much more driven with the Circus book, or so it seems anyway. But I have a feeling that this could be quite commercial, so I'm hopeful that it might do well if I can actually finish it.
George has got his 11+ this September, so I'm starting to stress about that a bit. We're applying to this co-ed grammar school in Potters bar which is amazing, but we've got no real fallback apart from where he is now, but hard to carry on affording the fees even with the staff discount. The grammar would save us a truckload of money, and they have a sibling policy, so we could get the other two boys in as well, when they turn 11. But tough to get in, so we'll have to prepare him a bit over the holidays. Also have to move house again in July, so that's on my mind too...
