Yippee! I’ve just heard that I’m a semi-finalist in the UK Songwriting Contest. Can you tell I’m completely ecstatic at the news? The final results won’t be announced until later this year, so I’ll be keeping my figures crossed until then. In the meantime however… Yippee! I’d actually turned my laptop on to do some work on my latest novel. However strangely after reading the results my mind is drawing a complete blank when it comes to thinking of dialog. In fact the only thing it seems to be able to come up with is, Yippee! Given the character in my story has just discovered she’s the prime suspect in a murder investigation, that might not be quite the response for her to go with.
