found some words

And here are a few more… ๐Ÿ˜‰

But, yes, a GOOD day re the novel, as I managed to find 8343 words, or around 25-30 pages, meaning I’m just two (or possibly three) chapters and 8000-12000 words away from completing the first draft, which I hope to have done by close of business Sunday. Or Monday, at the VERY latest. A bonza day, though, and a few good scenes and key moments, I think/hope. Time will tell.

Okay, think I’m gonna hang up my keyboard for the night. Here’s hoping you all found joy in your day. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh, and don’t forget to keep track of the 3words Wonky Twitter tale at #3wwmtt ๐Ÿ™‚



Yes, that’s the hashtag for my







begun today. I won’t be posting them all here, but they will be on Twitter, searchable with that hashtag (or so I believe), being the story of when Wonky FIRST met Odd Bob. Don’t miss out. ๐Ÿ™‚

Part 1:

Wonky Monky was twiddling his THUMBs when Odd Bob FELL into his life. Wonky had never felt a connection with anyone, BUT then…



what would you pay for editing?

As manyย of you know, over at I am an editor.

I work predominantly with independent writers (fiction, non-fiction &ย web content)ย because I want to help those I most identify with. You see, on THIS page I am an indie writer. ๐Ÿ™‚

I think my rates are excellent for the quality I provide, being just ยฃ3 or $5 per 1000 words.

However, because I want to be working AND helping, I have come up with an idea… YOU tell ME how much you would pay for my services, and we will see if we can progress from there?

Simply send me a 500-1000 word sample of your work, tell me the genre and target audience, and where it exists in the story (as in, opening, first half, second half, ending, etc.), and I will work through it as I would a fully-paid piece of work.

You then review it, see how you feel, and make your kindest offer regarding my fee per 1000 words, being a figure we can both respect, but that will still allow you to put bread on your table and electricity in your bulbs.

Like everyone, I have my minimum monthly income requirements, but if I can meet them each month AND provide some other help to even less financially able indie writers, then all the better. It will keep me out of trouble, and will give you a better chance of finding more readers. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sounds like a plan? Then let’s do it.

Oh, and, if YOU don’t have anything to edit right now but you know someone who does, please poke them into trying me.


3words Twitter Tale

I’m seriously considering combining my November (or October) 3words story AND twitter AND wonky monky.

That’s right, a 3words-prompted Wonky Monky short story told via 140-character-based moments.

Any thoughts?


I THINK it MIGHT be a prequel to my Wonky Monky 1 book, back when he was still IN the carpet… Haven’t thought about it any further than that, though…

Actually, I just drafted the first part. It’s only 23 words. Yikes.

Also, I think I’m going to add a hashtag to it, being 3WWMTT… can you guess why? I bet you can. Oh yes you can. Go on, try…


how brave is an agent?

HOW BRAVE ARE YOU? is the working title of the compelling and eye-opening book I have been editing for the wonderful Nicole Delacroix:

It is a riveting and sexyfun read, being a somewhat voyeuristic ride through the innermost thoughts of all theย kind (and kinky) souls who anonymously completed Nicole’s questionnaire. I was intrigued, shocked, amused and (yes, I’ll admit it, a little) titillated by its honesty and good-time-sass. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ™‚

So yes, the final run-through is now complete, and I want to thank Nicole for letting me play a part in her crazywonderful ride, and wish her & HBAY all the very best in finding an agent/publisher.

The question now is: HOW BRAVE IS AN AGENT?

If you think you know of one who might just beย brave and insightful enough to be interested inย an unputdownably sexy read, please get in touch. ๐Ÿ™‚



3words Redux paperback available

Yep, you heard right. ๐Ÿ™‚

Slightly different cover to the eBook


but now available at CreateSpace

& Amazon

link to be updated when… updated. ๐Ÿ™‚

Again, thanks to JOY VANN for providing the title to one of the stories – you are mentioned at least twice in the book. As will be any other future competition winner. ๐Ÿ™‚



3words Redux kindle available

Yes, that’s right – I managed to NOT focus on my EconomyEdits job for the weekend, the first two consecutive days I’ve not client-edited since I began.

Thanks for the ok, Nicole. ๐Ÿ˜‰

On top of that, I actively worked on ME things. First, I tarted up all the 3words shorts that I wanted to include in the collection. Then I created an eBook. And then I began working on the paperback version (give it a couple of days – tomorrow’s busy, and I’m back on the job again :)).

Oh, and I finished reading my novel TELL ME SOMETHING TRUE. I don’t like to toot my own horn, but… Man, I enjoyed reading that. I do think the intentional typos could be an issue, though, so will be stop-gapping that tomorrow or Tuesday by adding a “WARNING: TYPOS AHEAD!” type page at the start. And then see from there.

But today is more about 3words Redux now being available on Amazon as an eBook, and can be found here:

I do like that cover. ๐Ÿ™‚

And don’t forget – 3words August will be upon is in just a few days… so please seriously think about committing just 10 minutes a day to an ongoing story. You never know – you may love it! Obviously, I think you will. ๐Ÿ™‚
