Two writing triumphs really. I'm taking part in National Novel Writing Month and as the side counter declares I've made it over 9000 words! Pretty happy with that and am really enjoying getting up each morning and bashing out a novel that has lived in my head for years but has not made it to the top of my priority list until now. It's only day 5, so if you've been thinking about joining in, it's not too late. Here's the link to NaNoWriMo.
The second triumph is having ten articles accepted to the website Powder Room Graffiti and thus being named a Graffiti Artist. So what is Powder Room Graffiti about? Here's how they describe themselves: "Powder Room Graffiti is the response to the exasperated sighs of women across the globe. Powder Room Graffiti highlights the varied lives and experiences of articulate women and amplifies their voices. Our global community is the perfect place to share laughs, honest views and opinions in a safe and supportive environment." There are writers and readers from the UK, Europe, the USA and Australia. Articles can make you laugh and cry and you can join and add your comments, just as you do with a blog. They do pay a small amount for each article published, so budding writers may be interested in trying their hand.
Now for the Blog Tragedy. If you are reading this you have made it to Kangaroos of the Scrubby Bush. As you may know, until a few days ago this blog was called simply "Scrubby Bush". When I changed the name it seemed all well, that all my followers came with me and nothing but the name and header photograph had changed. Alas it seems many of you are no longer receiving the post notifications in your google readers so you may miss future posts. I'm working on what's happening here and if anyone can help please leave a comment. I'd also appreciate it if you are receiving Kangaroos direct into your reader now so I know if people are receiving it. Whilst it is now showing me as a follower, the blog is still not appearing in my Google Reader. I have reinstated Scrubby Bush as a link through, as that is still showing up and so that should keep you in touch for the moment. Thank you for your patience, it's much appreciated - clearly I'm still a blogging novice.
