Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! I know it is just a commercial holiday, designed to make people spend money on cards and champagne and chocolates, but I like it nevertheless. I will be spending the night with bubblies, chocolates and Mr Isa, having lots of sex. We do that on other nights too, but Valentine’s Day gives us the excuse to do it during the week. (We do have sex during the week, don’t worry, just not bubblies.)

So how are you spending Valentine’s Day? With a special someone or alone with a special something? However you are spending it, I hope it involves lots of orgasms!

Reflection time – be bold

Dance like no one is watching.

I love that saying. I try to live by it as well. I love dancing and I do far too little of it. I don’t really go out dancing that often anymore – really only at the office Chrismas party – but when I do, you can’t get me off the dance floor. And I don’t care who watches. It has always been a dream of mne to learn how to pole dance, but I am too old and weak to learn that now. Alas, a missed opportunity. (more…)

Great start to 2017

My year has gotten off to a good start: I have been accepted for the New Writer’s Scheme of the Romantic Novelists’ Association. In addition to the usual RNA member benefits members of the New Writer’s Scheme are invited to submit a manuscript for a critique. The deadline for this is 31 August. Which gives me 8 months to write and edit a book for submission. Which is great, because I love deadlines! I am so pleased to have applied and to have been accepted; it feels like I am finally taking my writing seriously. Which I am of course, but rather than just saying it, I am actually doing it.

I have also subscribed to Mslexia, a quarterly writers magazine for women. They also run an online writers community which I will have access to so that should be good. And I have decided to enter a short story in their competition in March. So yay, lots of fun writerly things to look forward to.
