Okay. This is the final time I am changing the name of my main character from Dreaming of Sleep. You read it here. Poor Myron, who then became Landon - which clashed a little with other famous literary characters - is now, and will remain forever more as, Hayden Monroe. If there are any other characters with this name, I don't care. As Scotty in Star Trek would say - she canno' take no more, Captain. But thank you to those who did point out Landon was too similar to other notable characters - I do appreciate your comments.
On a more positive note, my word count for Dreaming of Sleep increased this week - I'm now 86% done. 14% to go until the first draft is written.
I am taking a blogging break for a few days, as next week will be the last holiday Mr. G and I have together before my 12-week novel writing period begins. I promised Mr. G he would have my undivided attention, and we are planning to catch up with friends and family, and have a few days out.
Before I go, here are a few up-coming blogfests:
Poetry Schmoetry Blogfestfrom the 11th to 14th July, hosted by the wonderful Shelly Brown.
Inspiration Blogfest on the 18th July, hosted by the talented Summer Ross.
Novel Films Blogfest from the 1st to 3rd August, hosted by the inspirational Madeleine Maddocks.
Finally, a blog post that caught my attention this week - Death by Critique. Let me know what you think.
I shall be back towards the end of next week. Until then, have a fabulous week.
