A short one today as I'm off to a funeral with my mother. It's her aunt Pearl who died several days ago, a year after her husband. She was in her 90s and had long, happy life.

Taraaaaaaaaa! I've reached one hundred followers. To celebrate, I'll have an ebook contest next week.

Novel: Added two more chapters to Apollo the Thirteenth and have realised that Alan and Carla's marriage is very strong with neither of them threatened by the various other men/women who are trying to 'divert' them from each other. Mae is also proving to be a bit of a diva who hates people letting her win and hates losing when they try.

Short story for May's W1S1: Had a great idea inspired by Cowboys vs Aliens which I watched with my eldest son on Friday. More next week.

Play (Writing): Thanks to everyone who's left a comment over the past couple of months. I am now going to have a good long look at it and see what needs to change and where I need to add in further details and dialogue.

Play (Performing): Less than two weeks to go and the nerves are homing in on me like a guided missile. Can't wait for the three performances and I'm looking forward to falling over a sixth floor balcony. If you're nearby, come and see it. The line my kids will like most is where I'm stuffed into a laundry basket and one of the characters says, 'he's too fat'.

On that note, I'll bid you adieu and see you on Wednesday.

Congrats! Cowboys vs Aliens was good fun. Even better when it can inspire you.

Freya: It was one of those movies where you switch off your brain, sit back and enjoy the bad guys get a kicking.

Lisa: It's only taken me three years, but I like to think I have quality followers.
