Happy birthday to me


(Blushes as he hears all the wild cheering.)

I haven’t posted here for quite a few days. I’ve been busy putting the finishing touches to my MA novel and the accompanying essay.  My novel is now in its 6th draft and will soon see its 7th and 8th drafts. More on that another day. My 10,000 word exegesis essay is lingering around the 2,000 word mark and desperately needs my attention. Tomorrow.

For my birthday I treated myself by buying 2 new novels: “The Turning” by Tim Winton and “The Slap” by  Christos Tsiolkas. I’ll review them here when I’ve finished reading them in a few weeks’ time.

Good writing.

    Hope your birthday was a good one. My bookclub read The Slap this month. it provoked a lot of discussion. I will be interested in hearing your opinion of it. It’s an easy read but there are some gems lurking therein.

    Thanks for the birthday wishes Wendy.

    I’m being very constrained and keeping both books in reserve for a beach holiday in a few weeks’ time.
