So I shall be able to update the blog with greater regularity.
In the 40th Discworld novel it’s steam engine time.

This is a collection of mostly unfamiliar poems by Rudyard Kipling, culled from a variety of sources.
I spent the day reading ‘Brave New World’ by Aldous Huxley. I can’t believe I’ve never read it before. It was very thought-provoking, and slightly disturbing.
I finished it! I finished it!
For those who don’t know, I quite enjoy Dr Who. I can’t wait for the fiftieth anniversary episode on Saturday evening. As part of the celebrations Mark Gatiss has made a programme called ‘An Adventure In Time and Space’ – a dramatic retelling of the inception and early years of Dr. Who and the first Doctor, William Hartnell.
Good Evening all,
How’s all the WriMo’s doing? Only nine days left to go. I’m pleased to say that despite slowing down a little I’m still making progress. It’s taken me three tries but I think I’m finally going to be able to ‘win’ at NaNoWriMo.
I’m making better progress than I thought. Taking everything in to account I have written approximately 43,229 words and am about three quarters of the way through the novel.
I know I said I wasn’t reviewing any books this month because I’m concentrating on my novel but I got to 43000 words yesterday so I took some time off to finish reading an ARC I’d got from http://www.netgalley.com and another book I’d borrowed from the library. My reviews follow.
