My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

August Goals

Has anyone made any goals for August in terms of their writing? 

My goals are to continue not to spread myself as thinly as I have been, while I concentrate on getting through the next few months with family stuff and then there will be time to return to writing and blogging properly in due course.

Until then, I read, knit, crochet and visit my ailing parents.

Voice and Genre

I picked up this novel Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens, when browsing the local bookstore and read the first page to see if it was something that was worth purchasing. I was hooked and decided to buy a copy.

I'm only just getting into it and so far I am enjoying this teen novel with its age and genre appropriate voice; that of a young girl confiding her exploits to the reader, as though she were reporting it in her diary or a letter.

Excellent! 



I just read that she completed the first draft as a Nanowrimo in 2011!! Impressive.
