Me on Monday

Waving from Weston on a dry and calm day after a weekend that was extremely wet and windy, so I stayed in!

It was a lovely, quiet weekend. The sort that allows you to make a book: A book I’ve been wanting to make for ages – A printed book from Blurb.co.uk.

For a few months in 2013 and 2014 I took part in an online project called Five Minute Friday by Lisa-Jo Baker. She gave a prompt and you had to write about it for five minutes, not paying attention to spelling or grammar, just write and share on her blog.
(Lisa-Jo isn’t running the meme anymore, she has handed it over to Kate Motaung)

I always wanted to see this project printed.

So, over the weekend I went back to my writing and added punctuation and corrected grammar and of course let the software at Blurb run a spell check.
That was the best laugh of the weekend, should I change ‘don’t’ to ‘donut’ and ‘Miriam’ to ‘Miscarriage’ and a myriad of other hysterical substitutions.

So that was my weekend. A new bit of software learnt, pictures collected, words organised, review done and the ‘Buy Book’ button pressed.

Saying hello to fellow bloggers on a Monday is one of Sian’s brilliant ideas.

This is the cover of my book.
