Whirligig start to the new year

Wallpaper from www.wallcoo.net

I love the word 'whirligig'. It has an old-fashioned and giddy feeling to it. And giddy is definitely how I'm feeling. The year started with me doing my first ever live streamed interview, talking to Lynn Jordan at Regarding Romance about The Trouble with Mojitos. No, I don't understand how mojitos could be trouble either ;-)

There have been reviews for both my Rae Summers books and my Romy ones. A whole new school year has started (accompanied by the attendant wrapping of dozens of books and labelling of every single pencil, pencil crayon and eraser), and last week another highlight: I appeared on the official NaNoWriMo blog!

You can read my blog post here: Finding the right mix for your writing group.

In between all this, I'm back at the day job, am pulling my hair out over Book 3, and have tried to balance out all the hours I tell the kids to "go away because Mommy's writing" with taking them to the circus and Sleeping Beauty on Ice (though I have yet to make good on the promise to take them to see Frozen). And there's exciting news coming soon for South African romance writers. watch this space...

How have you kick-started your new year?

[PS: I'm not really here right now. If anyone asks, I'm in my writing cave editing my NaNoWriMo novel.]

  1. Wow - you've certainly started the year well and truly, Romy! Well done on all your success so far, and that to come this year.
