OTHER NEWS..........

I've finished writing the first draft of my young children's book that I mentioned last week. I've really enjoyed writing this story and I'm hoping that the editing process won't kill my love of it.

Anyway...I was inspired to write this story by the brave children I've encountered at POST PALS. Post Pals is a charity that asks volunteers to send post/cards/letters/gifts to sick children. A simple, affordable & effective way for anyone to bring smiles to children & their family. Please check out their website at .

New Ideas & All Things Scary

The Bodmin Bookworm theme for this month is 'All things scary'. What is a little bit scary is facing groups of children in assemblies and classrooms. But I'm having fun. We've only just started to receive writing submissions - it would be great if you could pay the site a visit and leave comments on children's work. (so far: Lanivet & St Tudy schools have submissions)

After practicing to be a human pin cushion (lumbar puncture) -I've found the past couple of weeks a bit of a struggle health wise. I got a bit down about not being able to keep up with my own writing and blogging.

BUT a few days ago I started writing a new story that I feel positive about. It is such a buzz to be writing again. It's as if writing works as a powerful drug on my mood. When I lose myself in my writing it is the most wonderful exhilarating feeling.
