Back on Wednesday

I'm writing this post while I try to remain awake. I have just about managed to write my 100 words which was alright. A good contribution to the story. I have had a breakthrough with my novel. I finally realised what was missing all along. I have made my heroine's best friend the other main character. I think it is fair to say that depending on what book I am reading at the time (Sushi for Starters by Marian Keyes - nearly finished it and loving it by the way) my novel changes in style. There are three main female characters in the book I am reading at the moment and it works very well creating cliff hangers at every turn.

I won't go on any more, partly because I don't have much else to report but mainly because I am knackered, I spent all day at a picnic in Ali Pali and had a few too many peronis. I will be away now until Wednesday as my boyf and I are off to stay with friends in Dorset. Till then....


  1. It's hard not to let the novel you're reading influence your style. I really have to fight against that!

    Have a lovely break :o)

  2. I don't think it'll have a bad effect if I do because the books that influence me are really successful ones, it does get a bit confusing though :S
    I shall! and I did!, thanks :)
