Flying Pigs

Oh. My. God. Rowan Coleman’s Short Story Competition CLOSES on FRIDAY. And where am I with my story? Well, I can’t tell you that cause my memory stick isn’t working on my computer here at work. And typically that’s where it’s stored!  That’s so annoying.

So, yeah. I really need to get a move on with this story. 4 days. Eek. Agh. Ahhhhhh!

Should be writing, not blogging…

Really should be…

But I can only access the story from home, so may as well carry on with this blog (don’t say I never try though!).

I’ve read so much this weekend. I had to work Saturday and Sunday on job numero 2, which was horrible, but it mean that I spent more than an hour on the tube a day – reading time! Plus the weather was so nice when I got home on Saturday, I went and sat in the park with my book. That means I’ve nearly finished The Memory Collector by Meg Gardiner.


Ok, I’ve just had a break and finished it. I’m pretty sure a thriller like that isn’t supposed to make you cry – especially not when you’re sat in the work canteen. I always see it as a good thing though – it means I’ve connected with the characters and I care. I did. Her next book in the series, Liar’s Lullaby, is available to buy now too. Can’t wait to read it!

Damn, I’ve just realised I need to do a review for The Memory Collector for my Thriller & Suspense reading challenge. Not until I’ve done my short story for Rowan Coleman.

I’m pretty sure that’s all I can waste my time writing about. I’ve been doing an early shift today, which means I will actually have an evening to myself tonight. I’ve been planning on going to the gym, but my back’s hurting so I’m not sure if it’s a good idea. Maybe I’ll go home, have dinner and write. Maybe pigs will fly… (and you were wondering where the title came from.)

  1. If your USB Stick is giving you trouble, try storing your data on the cloud (fancy way of saying ‘online’). At home I have a piece of software called Dropbox on my Laptop and Desktop. It is free and syncs a folder between computers so that I always have access the the most revision of a file (works great for documents).

    I wouldn’t recommend installing it on your work computer (it would make files at your home accessible to anyone that got onto your work computer) but they have a web interface which allows you to access your files. Once you finish editing the file at work, upload it back to the website and it will update the file when you run your home computer.

    You could also use Google Docs to store your documents but Dropbox syncs automatically.

    Hope that helps.
    Good luck with that short story competition

  2. Walt – you’re amazing. You’ve just reminded me I have a Ubernote account. Were you can store stuff online. I don’t know why or how I forgot that.
    Thanks for the good luck – have just finished draft one 🙂
