It’s Christmas Time

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

Well ok not quiet yet but with two weddings to attend and the presents only half knitted I need to think Christmassy. Also I wanted to try and get all the hard graft for The Little Book of Festive Poetry sorted. I was going to leave the audio version until next year but I’ve built […]

Half Way Mark

Thursday, November 15th, 2012

I am half way through the month and am on 12 hours of hard graft on my childrens/picture books, this is below where I should be but the reason for this is that I have been focusing on the writing challenge for #nanowrimo which is going fantastically well. But what I have done is organise […]

30 plus Hours

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

Ok so I managed to get another two drafted: The Dragon In The Cricket Club is a Horace the House Dragon story much to my little girls delight. I also got Alien’s Galatic Curcuit written 🙂 This is a tail of a space race around obsticals such as asteroids, and using gravity to sling shot […]

Another One Done!

I managed to get Sea Athletics written and I have planned out The Robot Marathon which turns out to actually about maths and brain power. I think I’m going to count these as part of my 12×12 in 2012 which means I now have 4 stories drafted – I might even catch up with myself […]

Harry Hydrogen

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

I did some drawings of Harry Hydrogen 🙂 Here is one of him and Pratricia Proton. As predicted by me some people are upset that I have used a magnifine glass but I think it helps the children understand that something small is made big – it is used as a metaphor for such in […]

12×12 in 2012 February Edition

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

I only have half a draft written this month I’m afraid 🙁 It is Poor Soggy Moggy which is a tail of how a stray pussy cat gets adopted and welcomed into a home even though it is mangy and smelly. Based on a true story too!

Monday, January 30th, 2012

To stop me going insane with rhyming kids poetry I have had a little brake this last week to work on my first draft for 12×12 in 2012. I decided to go with Harry Hydrogen – this is actually the first book of a set called The Periodic Periodicals and is something I initially planned […]

Another Year Over!

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

Well another years over and what a lot I have done though most of it will not bare fruit for a year or two! We got the keys to our new house the day before the Christmas holidays so haven’t even started moving yet! This means there are a few more Little Books of Poetry […]
