Celebrating

I have two writing reasons to be cheerful today:
  1. My crit group's new blog Minxes of Romance is going full steam ahead and some great authors have agreed to take up our author spotlight slots. In fact we have the winner of the RNA's Joan Hessayon award (announced yesterday), Lucy King, guesting in July - you can read about her win here
  2. I have started a new story AND found the paper notes for my Secret Billionaire partial so I can make some progress now...
I haven't had so much fun since my aqua-tai chi instructor told the class to swim to the deep end to warm up, completely forgetting that we had weights on our feet...

Yay - go Minxes.

And good to hear you're working on Secret Billionaire.

Oh, you do make me laugh! I now have visions of all these ladies trying to swim and sinking all over the pool. I expect the lovely tai chi instructor saved you all :-)

Also, yay for new story love and more Secret Billionaire.

Aqua-tai chi? Who knew? It sounds dangerous if you ask me ;). Congrats on finding your paper notes if you're anything like me that is no small feat and superman would be hard pressed to help.

That really made me giggle Lorraine, thank you!

Love the minxes site, will read with interest. Great to hear Lucy will be guesting too, looking forward to that.

Good Luck to you for secret billionaire! x

Go Lorraine minx! BTW I've sent up the hawks of freedom to kill and eat the crows of doubt, so we can now all get on with writing, knowing we're fabulous!

Hi guys, actually it was hilarious - I was the only one in the group who refused to do it, the others all started to swim obediently and had to be rescued/struggled to the side ;-)
