It’s catch up time…again

Sometimes I feel like I should change my blog schedule to once a month, at least then I wouldn’t feel guilty about having to post these little catch up sessions. The problem is if I do then I’ll probably find some way to avoid the new schedules as well! DAMN THE MAN!!

Damn schedules!

BUT…

I almost have excuses this time…almost.

I’ve been off ill for the past couple of days, which totally accounts for the weeks between posts and lack of actual content on this blog. Doesn’t it? I’d like to say I’ve been busy with a novel or short story, but so much other stuff has popped up I’ve had to drop my current WIP to concentrate on other projects. But fear not they are writing related! More news on these to come.

I was also recently asked to join the Horrifically Horrifying Horror Blog as resident horror author guru (yeah, yeah, I know – one out of four ain’t bad). This means posting to a dun dun dun…schedule! You’ll find my useful helpful scheduled posts on the HHHB every Monday at 8pm.

On a lighter note; spam and wasps.

Usually the quirkier items in my spam folder leave me with a smile on my face. This one left me with a grimace. It started off well with quite the inspiring quote “The only thing you take with you when you’re gone is what you leave behind” (John Allston). And then I read where it come from.

Dogging at doggingdirect.com

I do NOT what to think about what you take with you or, especially, leave behind when you go dogging…bleargh.

Now. Wasps…the little feckers. Slumped on the sofa during my sick leave I felt a tingle in my trousers (no, just, no). Approximately two seconds later I was standing  sans trousers after executing some midair ninja de-panting move. There was a damn wasp in my trousers…What The Fish just doesn’t cover that one.

Oh, and on a final note I might as well add that I totally ‘failed’ Camp NaNoWriMo for June. Like I said other projects popped up and threw my novel onto the floor like a spoilt child being asked to eat liver…my novel is the liver by the way.

At least there’s always Camp August!

    The funniest spam I’ve ever received was from people asking me to help them retrieve their millions.

    One was from the legal advisor of Colonel Gaddafi’s son.

    And more recently I had the step brother of the Sheik of Brunei asking for my help.

    I should have business cards made – clearly I’m really some sort of financial mastermind.

    Who’d have thought?

    Hope you are feeling better.

      Maybe you should reply, Chippy? You might make a fortune 😀

    I thought making schedules that you never achieve and posting “catch ups” was a necessary factor of blogging. I used to do it all the time but now realise no one gives a t… so why should I ?

    Not sure I understand the dogging thing properly. Probably just as well.

    PS I LOVE liver 🙂

    LOL! -> “executing some midair ninja de-panting move”

    I would have paid to see that. 😀

    Hey, take it easy on yourself too, Steven. I took June off from blogging to “catch up.” Erm… well. Let’s just say… slooooooooowly getting there. (But I’m not yet caught up.)

      So you’re saying I could make money being a ninja stripper? Interesting…I do need the money 😛
