Sixty Years

Come and visit me! 
Husbands can be useful at times! After 35 years of marriage he has really proved his worth this week!! He has been ferreting away sprucing up my blog page. If you look above there is a 360° panorama of my writing room if you click and drag you can spin around the room, go up and down and scroll in for a closer look. (Use your mouse wheel if you have one!). Seasickness pills are recommended. The numerous pictures on the wall are old family photos. The dream Catcher above my desk is there to stop any dreams escaping through the window! Please let me know if you can not view it properly, either via face book or contact me link on the right hand side.
Once again thanks to the computer guru who abides up in the attic - if you look closely you can see the ladder!

Day 10 
Day 10 of the challenge to write 50,000 words in 30 days and so far its going well. Almost 16,000 words done but I feel the enthusiasm lagging! It seemed such a good idea when I started but now the distractions are easier! Yesterday was planned as a full day of writing till an old work colleague, who I hadn’t seen in years, rang and the day transpired into a pub lunch, shopping and a catch up on gossip. Having said that it was lovely! So today is now the full writing day! I have a headache just thinking about it but here goes!.........

Writing and research 

I am now 10,000 words into my dragon story and waiting for my brain to seize up! So far it's all going smoothly but then it has been three or four years in the planning! It is such escapism but at times I almost lose touch with reality!
This morning I decided to ‘goggle’ herbal medicine and ended up looking at patterns for Magick Robes! Apparently according to the website the herbal remedies listed there didn’t work unless one was wearing ones Magick robe whilst mixing them! I have also discovered where the Yorkshire Dragons may live! Bagshawe Cavern looks the perfect place for a family of Faerie Dragons. The cavern was discovered by lead miners in 1806, when it was known as the Mulespinner Mine. The entrance is covered by a small stone building which is used as a changing room. Must send out a search party!
Ahhhh well; off now to do a ‘bit’ of housework then its back to the keyboard.

NaNoWriMo first day! 
Well so far the NaNoWriMo writing challenge is going really well. 2,395 words done, only another 47,605 to go! I stayed up until after midnight last night and managed 390ish before my head hit the keyboard and my brain went to mush! I am also in the process of trying to get to grips with Google plus. That is mind boggling! You sign up and create circles and all of a sudden WHOOSH - you have hundreds of contacts! Plus I have just got a new keyboard – A cherry keyboard, its very retro but nice to type on as it has ‘proper’ clicky keys. My only problem now is the other half can tell whether I am sat typing or idling away my time playing Farmville on Facebook! That reminds me my horses must need ‘mucking out’ by now!..........

I have been spending the last few days cogitating on the plot for my NaNoWriMo challenge. See here for details of the challenge:- I've almost completed the storyline in my head! I had three possible stories to choose from but I decided to play safe and write about my Faerie Dragons!!! I have also downloaded a useful looking book to my kindle So I am going to do my homework this afternoon!!
