I think I've tweaked the blog long enough now, although I might make one or two small changes now and then. It's too easy to keep faffing about with it instead of getting down to writing posts! So today is the first day of August, it will soon be autumn here in my part of Scotland, and I feel slightly more business-like now that I've had a little time off. I've also updated my history blog if anyone is interested in a 13th century priory.
My plan is to post some kind of market news or competition details on a Monday. On alternate Thursdays, I'm aiming to look at favourite books and writers, or interview a variety of new writers. In between, I'll post about anything that comes to mind or that might be of interest to someone else. Or that's the plan - but as we all know, life sometimes gets in the way.
On a personal note, we were delighted to see our honeymooners yesterday, safely returned from a wonderful trip to Australia. Although they were still trying to get over the jetlag, it was lovely to see them so happy together. Our daughter (the bridesmaid) was also here for dinner and we had a great time looking at all the photos on our larger computer screen. Just waiting on the official wedding photos next.
Meantime, I shall leave details of a novel competition:
