Conflict

 After I published this post, I had to go back in and change the title.  For some reason I picked the wrong title for this week's LBC post.  I don't think anyone will notice if I change the title.  I actually chose the topic 'conflict', but there is a battle raging within me.  I want to write about the universe and I have to write about conflict.  What a conflict!  So I shall write about the universe as I understand it and address the conflict.  The universe topic of next week will have thrown up some other take by next week.   There is no need to worry.  As my dear friend Suzanna Gilwen says, the universe takes care of everything. We live in a vast and ancient universe and no one really knows how old it is.  It is both old and timeless.  Time takes on a different meaning depending on where you are in this amazing place.  It is so vast that travelling from one spot to another, if of course one was able to do so, can take more time than a human being is allotted in it&

New Challenge

One of my writing/blogging friends Sally Quilford has come up with an idea to get writers and aspiring writers too to get writing.  She's launched a challenge along with some other friends which she's called "May - You Write Your Novel."  The challenge is to write 80k words in 80 days.  That's a thousand words a day.  I know I can do that.  So I signed up  I love writing and I love the excitement of writing alongside others. The thing is, I don't have an 80k words novel in my brain. In fact, I've just finished.   So with certain markets in mind, I'm writing two novellas, one of 30k and one of 50k. I'm into day five and so far so good.  And BTW I know I'm only writing light fiction not great literature.  I'm having a lot of fun, writing and writing alongside other participants.
