...sorry if I've offended anyone - but it's what every editor says - "get them with the opening hook so they want to read more."

Did it work? Probably not!

Anyway there is a bit of truth to the title - I can't believe it's over a month since I last posted a blog! Where does the time go? Not to mention that Blogger has been misbehavin' like no-one recently. Can't comment, or if I can, then only as "Anonymous" - very disconcerting.

Have I been a good and done lots of writing? Ehh no! Just 2 short stories. Pathetic really.

I heard that New Voices (the HM&B Writing competition) is going to be happening soon, so I might give it another go. Not sure what genre to tackle this time. Last year it was a Historical - but the old grey matter is toying with a mystery thriller of some sort and I've been searching the web logging onto the FBI, CIA and DEA websites and downloading information. Yikes! Can I do that? Download information from their websites? I might find myself on some "list" or some such. So if I mysteriously disappear and you never hear from me again assume 1) I've won the Lottery or 2) I'm being interrogated by MI6! You heard it hear first...

Until next time...if there is a next time.....Caroline x


  1. Lol - you like living dangerously! I went on the FBI website once and it scared me so much I never went back :-)

    Good luck if you do go in for New Voices - and remember two short stories are better than no short stories!

    And I love WTF by the way - it so often sums up what I'm thinking :-)

  2. Go on and thrill us ;-) A mystery thriller sounds great and hey if you do end up in an MI6 interrogation room at least you can look on it as research.


  3. Thanks Teresa and Lacey - thanks for stopping by!

    I think I will plump for a mystery thriller. Now all I need to do is think of a plot. No mean feat plots as they have a habit of zinging into my brain a 3am. This invariable means a grumpy DH as I have to switch on the light to find something to write on! Hey ho a writers life is never easy is it? Caroline ;o) p.s this is going to have to be annon - as this is the 3rd time I've tried to post this comment....grrr....

  4. You hooked me, Caroline :-)

    Good luck if you enter New Voices - a mystery thriller sounds FAB! x

  5. Thanks Amanda ;o) Caroline x
