    • Thank you, Madeeha. I’m very glad you liked it. Sorry it took me so long to reply – I’ve been trying to avoid visiting my blog while I’m taking part in CampNanoWriMo!


    • I’m a dreadful perfectionist! The constant need to rewrite and revise is one of those things I’m having to avoid giving in to whilst I’m Nano-ing. 🙂 Thanks for visiting, Ali.


    • Thanks, PJ. 🙂 Sorry it’s taken me so long to reply to your comment – I’ve been trying not to let myself get distracted from my CampNano writing!


      • I understand! I have been taking a semi-break and then this week has been a very busy one for me. I’m not blogging full time right now.


    • Thank you, Aletta. 🙂 That’s what most of my writing sessions are like – I’m a dreadful perfectionist. Sorry it’s taken me so long to reply – I’ve not been on my blog recently. My CampNano writing has been taking up all of my attention.

    • Thanks, Cybele. Perfectionism can be a crippling problem at times! One of the things I like about joining in with Nano events is they force me to keep writing and not look back over what I’ve already written. Sorry it’s taken me so long to reply to your comment – I’ve been trying to avoid the blog whilst I write for CampNanoWriMo. I can lose hours wandering around people’s blogs. 🙂

      • I’m so behind lately too! Been writing a new story and that’s hard enough to try to keep disciplined lol!
