My blog is magic
Chopper says my blog is magic because I posted photos of a hedgehog on one of my wordless Wednesday posts and now we have a hedgehog happily bimbling around our garden. Chopper and I sat in the garden Friday evening and watched it wandering round. That evening was the stuff dreams are made of.
N3S and I have fallen completely in love with our hedgehog. Chopper and N2S are quite interested in him and only N1S pretends not to like him saying he is smelly and disgusting. It’s his age, 19 almost 20 seems to mean that he is biologically incapable of agreeing with anything anyone else says. The only member of our household who genuinely hates ‘Hedgy’ is Sebi our tortoise because Hedgy has decided that he quite likes Sebi’s house and has moved in with him.
Chopper would like me to use my magic blog to write a post about us winning the lottery but I’ll think I’ll put it to good use by blogging about getting a publishing contract with a big house, such as HarperCollins or Random House. There. I’ve posted it. So now the magic’s got to happen right?
I am doing everything I can to help make the magic happen. Since I hired BubbleCow to edit Without Alice, I’ve been working hard. I mean really hard, OMG. The only way I’ve ever been able to fit writing in is to do it in the hours when normal people sleep. Having a professional like Caroline go through my little book with a red ‘pen’ is a great way to get motivated and I have been getting up at 5am to work on Without Alice. I am now on the second edit and have added 10,000 words! My little novella is quickly becoming a novel, all I need to do now is find another 7,00 words inside me and I think I know where they are. Best of all, I feel really excited about it all. Scoff at me if you will but I think that being edited is actually fun.
Anyway, I do digress. What I had intended to say was that I am sorry that I haven’t been visiting many of your blogs lately. As you can see I am short on time. I’ll be round to catch up on your news as soon as I can. If you can, please leave a short version of what has been keeping you busy in my comment box.
