Hello Shed People!
Ooo I'm a bit excited to be writing in my Shed!
Apologies for it taking me so long to get acquainted with this space and to pop up and say a massive and really heartfelt thank you to you all for supporting this project.
In excuse of my terrible tardiness, things have been a bit busy of late. Page 3 went, then reappeared, but now thankfully seems to be really properly gone. Boom! I wrote a little book called How to Start a Revolution, which is already in the shops. Blimey! I'm expecting a baby. Wah!! I realised I was in financial ruin after 2 and a half years of unfunded campaigning. Uh oh. I surrendered my idylic home in a forest in Sussex on the grounds that I couldn't afford it and had a baby on the way. As you do. And am now ensconsed in my parents attic where I am cracking on with Don't Hold My Head Down. Rather odd to be pregnant and at my parents whilst writing away furiously about sex, porn and masturbation, but there you have it.
I am loving writing this book though. I'm about 25,000 words in so far. So still a way to go. But I'm here everyday on it now and feeling confident I'll have a draft completeted by early June. Also, it's only 30% funded so I do need a bit of a miracle on that front too. Still, it's doable, I reckon!
Huge thanks for believing in it. And me. x
Good luck with the writing and I look forward to reading it some day! :)
