#35 Beach Baby


We disappeared up to Sutton’s Beach (Redcliff) this afternoon. I would have loved to have taken a photo of my toes poking out of the water as I floated in sea bliss, but didn’t want to risk the phone in the water – call me lacking in adventure. I felt tired and shaken up like an champagne bottle (ready to explode) the time on the beach and water allowed me to detox the negativity and come home feeling refreshed – and a good sort of tired.

In the foreground of the mess called our “space on the beach” is Blue Melissae. It was the perfect place to get lost in the world of Shet and Karu. I will definitely have reached the end by the time Sunday comes – actually hoping to get there midweek.

#29 Blue Melissae


Last year for NaNo I started sci-fi manuscript which ended up being called “Blue Melissae” which became a fusion of lots of thoughts I had running around at the time – from Goddess worship, to neuroscience and men with awesome tattoos.  The characters of Shet Harmon and Karu came to me in a dream – which is much morphed from the humble beginnings.

I’ve decided to complete the manuscript this year for NaNo and decided it would be a good idea to reacquaint myself with the major charactes again and the society which Karu belongs to – thus the printed off copy.  Last year I had just hit my stride with the story when it was time to end – so I’m hoping like hell I can pick it up again and run towards the line with it.
