Edits & Quote of the Day.
I began the editing process on Cauldron of Fire, my novel in The Collector series published by Loose Id Books. It's never an easy process but has to be done to get the best from a work for the readers.
Meanwhile, a quote...
"When authorities warn you of the sinfulness of sex, there is an important lesson to be learned. Do not have sex with the authorities."
Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons.

Now that has got to hurt!
I came across this image on the web the other day. Couldn't really believe my eyes! It looks cute, but ouch!
Hands up all those who'd go to this extent to impress someone?

On Writing...

It's not easy being a writer, but it's usually fun. Usually. The great movie actor David Niven wrote some wonderful autobiographies of his career, but he really didn't feel comfortable with the process of writing. He once said that the sight of an aircraft flying overhead was a godsend when he was typing outside in the garden. He'd stop and watch it pass out of sight, so he didn't have to write.

Most times the simplest cure is BOCFOK = Butt On Chair, Fingers On Keyboard. You may not feel you can write anything, that the inspiration is lacking. Trust me, when you do BOCFOK, and just begin to write - anything that comes into your head - the words will come.
