May Madness!

May Madness!

**Just before I start - I have a new release - Woo-hoo - my story I Am Matilda Jenks is out now in the Xcite anthology Tricks For Kicks - there's loads of good stuff in there so why not have a look?!** 

Well my goodness, what a wild month we’re having and I’m not talking the racy kind of wild – I’m talking weather. Today I have worn, outside, a T-shirt (for about three minutes), a thick woolly jumper (then it rained), so on went the jacket, and now I’m too hot in my waterproof coat but every time I go to take it off, there’s another gust of wind and downpour. What’s a girl to do? It’s like someone is standing around the corner with a bucket of water just waiting till I’m brave enough to take off a layer…

UK spring. Wow. It’s crazy. I’ve been thinking about how the seasons affect the themes in my writing. I think all in all, if I write in the spring, my stories are set in the spring and autumn always has a dew covered spider’s web creeping in.  So if I have a novel that’s taking longer than I would like to write, I will have to be extra careful of my seasonality – ahem… if you’ve read any of my books, or are thinking about it, maybe don’t check up (please…?) I’ve only just thought of this!

That sound you’re hearing – that little thump, thump, thump, - that’s the sound of me running off in a panic to check for seasonal inconsistency in my current work in progress.

See you in a couple of weeks!
