Welcome to my new blog! This is a very self-centred place where I will be posting stuff all about me :). For stuff about my family and my beautiful son Ben go to www.projectmonkey.me.uk. For random waffling about what I need to write, novel excerpts and pictures of craft projects, stay here.
The next big thing is NaNoWriMo 2010, which starts Nov 1st. This year I am ML once again, though I have Bec, my lovely co-ML, to help me out. Since I also have a little distraction in the form of a teething baby my novel is going to be a bit mad in the hopes that being sleep deprived might actually be a benefit. The novel is Pixies in Space! Here is the summary I’ve posted on the NaNoWriMo site:
Foxglove Thistledown always considered himself to be a typical pixie. He lived in a toadstool house on a sun-soaked meadow, wore the latest fashions crafted from seasonal flower petals, and was best friends with a red squirrel. Typical pixie stuff. Until the day he was stolen from his exhibit by a desperate space captain and learned his whole world was a lie. Now he’s stuck in on a failing ship with a motley crew, a mysterious passenger, and a fairy engineer who only wants him for his pixie dust. Fox is about to learn he’s not as typical as he thought he was.
There’s also going to be space vampire pirates (non-sparkly), a crazy geneticist, and I haven’t worked out how yet but I’ll get those ninjas in there somewhere I’m sure. The only problem I have now is getting a plan done by November because I know that this project is not going to get off the ground without one. Wish me luck!
