Larfing out loud & other stuff


It's been tough with regards to my personal life this year. Things that have been too personal to put on this blog, but I have shared them with my lovely Romaniac pals, as they have with me, and they've really become a pillar of support. So when 7 out of 9 of us caught up at the RNA Conference, well, the photo above sums up the weekend. I don't think I've ever laughed so much over the space of a few days. It really was therapeutic and we really are all as mad as we come across on The Romaniacs' blog. Each personality is so different, but when we get together, we really do compliment each other - in a good way, I hope. To sum up our weekend, we will have a blog post on Monday titled: Penrith: The photos we didn't want you to see! So keep an eye out for those.

Yesterday I had my report back from the NWS. The main thing I need to work on is my characterisation and they've advised I start the next one and come back to the current one at a later date. Sounds like a good plan to me. I'm trying to plot the next one out much more in the hope of not making the same mistakes I did first time round. Before this I'm going to continue my Take 10 challenge. So far I've completed 2 projects with another 8 to go. I'll keep you updated and in the mean time, if you don't find me here, I'm over with my nutty pals, The Romaniacs!

  1. This is one of my favourite pictures from the whole weekend - it just sums everything up!

    Speak for yourself about being nutty - I prefer to be likened to fruit, as in fruit-bat.

    1. Hi Liz,

      It really was a tonic. Or was that the alcohol?

      Thank you for the luck as well.

  3. What a brilliant photo! I'm so pleased that attending the conference gave you such a lift, Catherine. I so wish I could have joined you & the rest of my Romaniac buddies for the weekend. Looks like a fab time was had by all.

    Best of luck with that Take 10 Challenge :)

    1. I love it as well. We had so much fun. Looking forward to starting the new book, just need to work everything out beyond the idea.

  5. I love this photo! I'm so impressed with how the Romaniacs gel together. You're each lucky to have such a wonderful group providing support.

    As for the NWS report, I have four novels to which I shall never return... all great practice, though. Sometimes I think that's the best way to look at it. You get better with every word you write!

    1. And you made a great Romaniac flatmate!

      I've learnt lots from this novel. I just hope the next one is an improvement!

  7. You're doing better than me on the Take 10 Challenge - Ive just completed and sent off one (totally new market) project. Nine more to go...

    Hope to join you on the NWS next year.

    1. I'm not much further along. Have a few ideas, now need to get pen to paper or fingers to laptop in my case.

      Good luck with the rest & fingers crossed for getting onto the NWS next year!
