Tomorrow I have a man coming round. I'm going to have to pay him but hey! I'm banking on him being good value for the money. £40 an hour should be good I reckon!
Oh okay, he's coming to sort out my PC mess of two desktops, a laptop and an Apple notebook that I can't work. He's also going to fix up my wireless router, my lovely new 19" flat-screen and the pretty new printer.
I hope to have PC access wherever I want it then maybe I'll get into the swing of doing things efficiently! I really wish I'd been educated in the computer era.......
I've volunteered to take part in a word race for my new novel that is about to become a 'work in progress' (WIP). Writing is a lonely old business that involves a lot of sef-motivation. Now that can be hard for someone like me who is more into work displacement but I'm intending to give it a go as soon as the copy-edits of PAST CHANCES have been sent back.
Check out Kate Harrison's blog at http://chicklitworkinprogress.blogspot.com/
for some interesting info and also to check out an expert blog by someone who can do links! Yes, I know, I will learn very soon.
Essex Book Festival will be up and running in March so anyone who's nearby do come along. I'll be at Tye Green Library in Harlow on March 19th. Bit of info here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/essex
and then search!
Loads of interesting authors and writers. Essex is a great county for talent I reckon.
Southend Book Festival is in May and I shall be there also, details later.
Okay, now I'm back to work, its going to be a late night tonight!
Memo to self: Must do links.. must do links... I'm going to study the instructions right now and start practicing.
