Interested in self-publishing that NaNo novel you just spent all month…

What matters in life is not what happens to you but what you remember and how you remember it.

Try to tell a writer that their book will never be published, and you’re giving them an extremely valid reason to prove you wrong. They will write until their fingers no longer have prints.

"The Girl Who Lived on the Bottom of the Sea"
There once was a girl who lived on the bottom of the seaBorn with gills in her neck, it’s the only place she felt freeSwimming and floating, to be left alone was her wishLiving a peaceful life amidst the coral and fish.
But growing up on dry land, they called her “The Wretched Gill Girl”Cruel people kept her in a cage, and sneers and jeers they would hurlShe endured their mockery and laughter, so jealous and pettyUntil she escaped from her prison, and dove off the jetty.
Bidding the surface world “adieu”, she made a new life for herselfFormed a country of her own, deep between the continental shelfLeaving those awful folks behind, she has no more reason to frownAnd when the ice caps finally melt, she can watch them all drown. :-)

"The Girl Who Lived on the Bottom of the Sea"

There once was a girl who lived on the bottom of the sea
Born with gills in her neck, it’s the only place she felt free
Swimming and floating, to be left alone was her wish
Living a peaceful life amidst the coral and fish.

But growing up on dry land, they called her “The Wretched Gill Girl”
Cruel people kept her in a cage, and sneers and jeers they would hurl
She endured their mockery and laughter, so jealous and petty
Until she escaped from her prison, and dove off the jetty.

Bidding the surface world “adieu”, she made a new life for herself
Formed a country of her own, deep between the continental shelf
Leaving those awful folks behind, she has no more reason to frown
And when the ice caps finally melt, she can watch them all drown. :-)

Snow bites, and it bites hard. If you’ve ever left you skin exposed to it for longer than a moment, you’ll know the feeling. That akin to hundreds of needles, almost like a burning acid until the cold is so complete that there is no longer any feeling at all, as though your flesh has become…

I’m spectacularly disorganised. I wrote my latest book in seven different notebooks scattered throughout my house.
