Facebook - not a total waste of time

Wow, it would seem that skiving off on facebook can be beneficial. Yesterday while scrolling through some updates I noticed the status update say that Sophie Kinsella, author of the Shopaholic books is giving some great insight on starting and finishing your first novel. I headed straight over to the Barnes and Noble website and posted a question off to her. I haven't had a reply yet but shes only on till tomorrow so I should (hopefully) get one soon. I've had a look through the Q and A’s and got a few nice tips from her so far. It's definately worth a look.

Other than my total devotion to Facebook I have managed to squeeze in a bit of writing here and there. Work has been crazy busy all week which meant I lost my lunchtime writing slots and my brain was sozzled the moment my arse hit the couch. Luckily it's a Bank holiday weekend and also boyf is away all weekend so I intend to make as much use of my free time to write write write.


  1. I didn't know you were on facebook!! If you want to look me up I'm under Carol Burns and I should be easy to spot as I have the same profile picture :-)

    Good luck with the writing

  3. Ooh I'll go and have a look at that. I'd love a bit of Sophie Kinsella magic :o) Did you get a reply?

    Hope you managed to get some writing done!

  4. Karen - I did yes, very helpful it was too. I'm going to blog about it now. Thanks, I got loads of writing done today too.
