Monday!

As you will see if you read the next post, I have started writing my book!  I blogged about this idea long, long ago, but have finally decided to put pen to paper.  Or maybe finger to keyboard is more precise?

It is basically a trashy action story that, if made into a movie would star someone like Steven Segal or Bruce Willis.  It includes masses of cliches but I hope that there will be enough fresh ideas to make it entertaining.

I intend to post snippets here, starting with an introduction to the main characters that pop up throughout the story.

Some of the characters are inspired by friends of mine, including a blogger or two.  If you think you see yourself, I hope that you like the way I have portrayed you!

Anyway, back to reality!  Today is supposed to be the most depressing day of the year - Christmas is a distant memory and the bills are starting to arrive!  The weather here is doing its best to make everyone miserable, cold, grey and raining.  I was totally soaked by the time I reached work - good job I packed a complete change of clothes!

More soon, and if you haven't read it already, please read the previous post which introduces two of the main characters in my book.

Already read it.

Already waiting for the movie to come out. And hold out for Bruce Willis. Better acting skills. Remember to throw in the obligatory Christmas scenes for flavor.

That is exactly why I go to a warm spot about now every year.

Love the fact that you've started your book and I can't wait to read more.

The winter is really messing with me. My attitude is sheer ugly the past few days.

Good for you!!!!! I, too, have started on a writing project. I have a coupe of bloggers as characters...but they might not be too flattered.

Bruce willis was't bad, i love his movies too. He rarely disappoints.
Tell you what, finish the book, post a copy to me and i will use my fabulous evil power to wish it as a bestseller. How's that sound?
