Yeah, I know, I'm a bad blogger. I'm sorry. But I have a really good excuse for not posting more regularly. I haz been writing. OK, it's not *that* good an excuse, since that's what writers are supposed to do, and plenty of them seem to manage to write novels and be all clever and funny on Twitter AND produce insightful/witty/moving blog posts. Alas, I am not one of them. 

I'm staring down the barrel of a scary deadline, wrestling with book three (it's like an alligator, only more slippery). This writing malarkey can be hard sometimes, and now is one of those times. Of course, this is when my procrastination skills really come in handy, so there's been a lot of...

1. Watching DVD box sets
2. Rearranging my bookshelves
3. Daydreaming
4. Reading other people's blogs
5. Thinking about book four
6. Hanging out with friends and talking about how hard writing is
7. Making playlists on Spotify
8. Online clothes shopping
9. Telling my puppy how handsome he is
10. Walking on the beach and pretending I'm a Home & Away character being all thinky and stuff

So you can see how busy I am. And I'm sure you now understand why the blog has been sadly neglected. It may well remain neglected until the deadline of hideousness is well and truly behind me, but one day (maybe) I'll be a better blogger.

In the meantime, there's the TORN launch party this week, a schools tour coming up AND a sneaky trip to NYC. Oh yeah, and book three to finish. Sigh. I hope YOU are keeping well, though?


  1. Well it is important to be all 'thinky' from time to time. Kind of goes with the territory doesn't it?! :)

  2. Good luck on the writing! It almost always works out in the end.

  3. Joanna - I try to avoid thinking whenever possible.

    Isabel - Thank you! I like the 'almost' there ;)

  4. Procrastination: why I'm reading your blog at 11pm when I should be PACKING!! xx

  5. Lovin yur books which are out! Have fun *thinking*! #1 fan!!! x :P
