Books packed and ready to go to Clifton Library tomorrow morning 10.30 - 12 noon at the monthly coffee morning - coffee and books, what a perfect combination.
There are a few sheep too, and some wool to knit more. It's that time of year again, a bit of knitting in public to keep up with demand for these little woolly ambassadors who escaped the printed page.

Sheep - they're in danger of taking over...
This week I posted my sheep knitting pattern freeon my website, then twittered about it, it generated a lot of new followers, seems sheep inspire people to follow...
Not many people have linked through to the website for the pattern though, so maybe they just want to follow like sheep, but not overrun themselves with woolly sheep...

Ideas have no sense of timing or order - they just spring into one's head and start running around like unruly puppies. And I should know, I currently have ideas and an unruly puppy to fit into my already busy days.
Why is it that while I was in the final stages of finishing my book, I was brimming with all sorts of ideas to launch and promote it – I even wrote some of them down... somewhere.
Yet now when I need all those ideas they seem to have fled - and ideas for my next book are rampaging around in my head... I guess I’m a writer not a promoter...
So here it is, you know, if you're fancying a new book:

Why think outside the box when you can sit in the box and let it become... a racing car... or a castle...
Why think outside the box – when you can sit in the box and let it become... a racing car... or a castle...
We don’t need buzz words and executive toys; all we need is a box and some time to let our imagination run wild.
So stop all this nonsense about thinking outside the box, and jump back into the box. The best ideas need sneaking up on, they’re going to run a mile if you’re always trying too hard – so get back in that box and bide your time, ideas come out to play when you’re daydreaming or thinking about something else.
And if no ideas come to you, or you’re too out of touch with your imagination to know what I’m talking about, then read a book – lose yourself in it – go on I dare you to!
