Welcome to my blog!

I am a lefty. I write vertically, cannot use can-openers and was recently foiled by a right handed ladle (I will have my vengeance...) but more than this, I generally seem to approach life from a different angle. I appreciate that this may have nothing to do with being a lefty and may just be my own dysfunctionallity, but after earning the nickname 'Lefty-Flip' after a frustrating game of Guitar Hero, it seemed an appropriate title for this blog.

Note to Self...

Well before the whole of May goes by without a single post (how did that happen?!?!?!?!) here's an update on what I have been up to...

Reading this!
ACID - Emma Pass

So excited to finally have my hands on this book, but to do it justice I will save that for another post!

The big news this month is that I have (finally) reached a point where I have a complete readable draft! So I am currently annotating my way through this...

I have some big plot holes to fill, and a character whose gender currently changes mid-chapter (I changed my mind, that's all!) and a whole bunch of clunky sentences to fix, but it's getting there!

The more professional editors and writers amongst you will no doubt be familiar with the standard editing symbols. I however seem to rely on a series of smiley faces, frowny faces, scribbly red pen, and pencilled comments in the margins!

For your viewing pleasure...


I'm not always that harsh on myself - there are plenty of smiley faces too!
Right, back into the writing cave I go! See you next month!
