hello... the onlything I have written recently is a few paragraphs for the start of a fairy tale.. inspired from a small painting I did awhile ago.. I tend to get distrated easily from writing and lacking in determination to sit down and just write. I do carry a notebook with me at all times though.. becasue you never know...

- how do you go about getting someone to buy your book?

- how many words does a novel have to be roughly?

- how much money would you receive from a novel?

Ooooh - interesting questions mankymummy...

Wot no posts l8ly????

Have people stopped writing??? - No, I know that never happens!

I like the idea of a notebook - I have one for my job and find it does help to organise thought process!

I wouldn't mind starting a writing one too.... BUT The trouble is finding time for these things in The Land of Toddlerdom!!!

So... come on tell us what is happening in your imagination! I bet since Wednesday lots has been written!
