    I’ve got some choice phrases from “The Blob” running round in my head now. Loved that film. Also, I have to say that in reply to his number 8, I frequently blog about how my career is in the shitter, in fact it’s so far down the shitter I’m practically at the sewage works. I’m eagerly anticipating the moment it gets out of the down pipe and actually makes it into the bowl…

    Sorry. Rambling. Stop.

    Cheers

    • Lol, I know EXACTLY what you mean honey! We glacial girls have to stick together…er…maybe that wasn’t the right choice of words given the sewage analogy! πŸ˜›

        Yeh #slowwriters rocks. I am working on a blog post about that, actually. I’ve been reading Dan Holloway’s book about self publishing with integrity and he makes a really good point about having realistic expectations. He espouses the thing about having 1,000 hardcore fans who buy everything you produce being enough to make a living. So now I’m thanking my stars I planned merchandisable artwork etc etc…

        Cheers

      • Well done for you honey! Lol, yes, we slow writers are like a fine wine, we need time to mature into something special rather than race through projects and end up with vinegar! πŸ˜€
