Really need to sort out the migrating moleskine project, if anyone still remembers it.

Who's still interested?

evening all

Long time no LJ. I trust you're all well?

Had a couple of notifications of people who've removed me from their friendslist here. I know I don't post directly here often, but hope I haven't upset anyone with what I have posted.

posted here, but not there. I'm not sure why.

Anyone doing NaNoWriMo this year? I genuinely can't decide. I 'won' in 2011, and the printed copy is sat in a folder on my desk, glaring at me. It's the last piece of fiction I've written. I think NaNo broke my mojo.

Or I've just been busy/lazy/other.

Do I do NaNo2013 and rediscover my writing? Or not.

Time, as usual, will tell.

Anyway, I hope you're all well. I notice one or two of you have wandered off, or removed me from your list of journals you follow. Fair enough, I've been gone a while.

Back from holiday in Cornwall, slightly knackered and beardy, but had a great time. Did you miss me?

Been a bit lax with the Moleskine Project. Anyone still interested in getting it?

I guess I should sort out the Migrating Moleskine at some point. I'm getting the feeling that the project has rather lost steam...

Mmm, cake.

2B, or not 2B... the books I've read so far this year (some corkers in there), and last, but not least, someone writing the alphabet out. Trust me. It's remarkably soothing.

I done been blogging again.

I talked about books – ebook vs dead-tree and coffee

One day I'll work out how to automagically cross-post to here from there. In the meantime, if you'd be so kind as to do the clicky thing? There are footnotes and everything.

Hello!

Just popped in to say hi. How are you all? You're looking splendid, as always. Is that a new haircut?


anyhoo, my 'read all the books in my house which I haven't yet read' challenge for 2013 continues apace. Just finished book #6 and am in the process of choosing book #7.

What was book #6, I hear you ask? It was London Falling, by Paul Cornell.

Yes, *that* Paul Cornell.

The book was fab - kind of a darker, nastier version of Ben Aaronovitch's equally excellent Rivers of London series - about a group of coppers who come up against a Big Supernatural Bad, that only they can see, and decide that they'll take it down in the only way they know how, by solid police work.

Great stuff, well written with some ace characters. Sets up well for a sequel too. Go read it.

Then, when you've read that, put your pre-orders in for Lauren Beukes' The Shining Girls - it's out in May and is about a time-travelling serial killer and a girl who didn't die.

It's AWESOME.

If you can't wait until May, pick up Lauren's earlier book, Zoo City. Which is utterly brilliant too.

Right, off to choose book #7. TTFN!
