“…written from the heart.”

Hey guys!

Well what can I say other than horrible, awful week! That was until this little spark of joy brought me back from the darkness, a 5* amazon review for my short story Senghenydd.

The 14th October 1913 is a date that should be burned into the national consciousness just as is the sinking of the Titanic. On this day 440 men lost their lives in an explosion in the Universal Colliery Senghenydd, an event that graphically underlined the human cost of coal. Hardly a household in the village was left untouched. This short and moving account as seen through the eyes of one of the survivors should be compulsory reading. It is certainly compulsive and obviously written from the heart. Thankyou and well done Elise for Senghenydd (Historical Short Story)

 

To the writer of the review, whoever you are, I would really like to say thank you! After a very long and tearful week this really put a smile on my face. To all of my readers, thank you so much for your continued support.

Edit, write and flap!

Hey all!

So as I mentioned in my previous post I’ve been keeping pretty busy the last couple of months, work has been busy with a last rush of late summer visitors, I’m still editing my novel which I am determined to get out by the end of the year but am tempted to send to a professional editor to get checked over before it’s published so that it’s squeaky clean 🙂 But along with editing I am desperate to start my new project based around my short story Senghenydd so I am also swatting up on the history of the South Wales mining communities during the early 1900’s. I am thoroughly enjoying doing some research again but have on occasion found myself in a bit of a flap when trying to do everything at once, so this evening I’ve taken a step back and realised to move forward I need to stop rushing around panicking as I’d probably get far more done then so tonight is the start of that by popping in here to update you all.

So keep popping by as I will be popping in more often with updates and mutterings 🙂

Night for now!
