What a week. I had just started to implement my new routine of getting my housework done, then spending an hour or two on the laptop in order to get the editing done, when a friend turned up unexpectedly and has stayed for a week. It has been lovely spending time with her and her beautiful little girl, but I haven’t got anything done! No editing, no nothing! ARRRRGH!
On Saturday, KiwiWriters had its very first “Buy a NZ Book” day to coincide with NZ Book Month. This is a month long celebration of all things literature within NZ, and we decided to support NZ writers. So did I purchase something? Too right I did! Lila Richards “A Different Hunger” on eBook, which is now sitting on my Kindle, waiting for me to read it.
Oh, did I forget to mention that I have been recently converted to the latest in technology and bowed to pressure… well not really. I brought myself a Kindle for my birthday, and I am blown away by it. It is a truly amazing thing, and I love it so much that I haven’t taken the plastic protective covering off it yet, although the back one is only clinging on by a couple of centimetres. I spent all of my money purchasing the Kindle, I now have to save up and get myself a flash as cover for it, so that it is even more protected. But I am so pleased with it, and I have already started reading books on it, downloaded a heap of free ones, and paid for a few as well (including Lila’s book, which can be found on Bluewood Publishing site).
So it has been a rather eventful week, and now is the only opportunity I have had to update my blog. Hopefully the next time, I will be able to update it more about my writing than about my life!
