I need to finally finish an application and get it sent off today and then get on with starting a book proposal. I have spent some of the past few days reading up on everything I need to include. I really have no idea as to whether this will result in anything but just doing it will be really good practice.
As for the glamorous side of writing I don't think I can represent it at the moment! Sadly I am too broke to get my hair dyed at the salon and my collection of white hairs is becoming more obvious. At 29 I don't feel like I should have any white hairs but I found the first on my 21st birthday! So I have conceded to dying it at home although I am too broke until pay day to even buy a pack. So I went in with my Boots advantage card with adequate points to get the dye and they refused to sell it to me! Why? Because I have changed my name (to my married name) and apparently they sent me out a new card. I wouldn't mind but I put the card in the points checker and all the information came up on screen including my married name! So I left Boots and the hair dye on the counter. I could have paid somehow but I don't see why I should when I have the points stored up!
Anyway to add to my glamour status today I am sat here with a white alice band on to control my wild hair and to hide the white ones and my Primark tracksuit bottoms for comfort! It is not a good look but you can't see me so I'm not worried! I think at some point I may have to address my fashion sense before I venture out into the world again. I wonder what the awards ceremonies would look like if writers turned up in what they wrote in!
