If We Were Having Coffee During NaNoWriMo With A Writing Prompt

4th November 2018

If we were having coffee, I’d say that I haven’t linked up to the official weekendcoffeeshare in a while, so here I am. Hi. I have actually been trying to post this post since Friday, but bad weather has played with our internet connection and my nerves. Last week’s writing prompt was ROAD TRIP, thanks to my epic road trip over here. If you’re visiting for the first time, I post a writing prompt every week, and then share people’s…

Meet Truman

4th November 2012

In an update on Coffeegate 2012, say hello to Truman Bubbles: As you can see from the photo, Truman comes with a very safe, very wireless keyboard. (The marshmallow was consumed very soon after this photo was taken.  I was worried about sugar-damage.  ‘Have you learned nothing?’ I said to Sarge. Regular blogging will resume tomorrow.  Right now, I must type up the pages of my handwritten Nano novel . The name is in honour of Truman Capote.  The middle name suggested by…
