Writing and reading... and other news

By Colin Dunbar


It's Sunday morning, and it's a beautiful day sunny day. The blue sky has bundles of white puffy clouds. A great day to be alive and to be grateful for.

Writing was minimal last week, as I was busy with my one client's ebook. I should be able to wrap it up next week and then my writing will take center stage again. I did manage to do a bit of work on the 2nd edition of my memoir, and wrote my daughter a letter. We're looking forward to her coming home for a holiday the end of April. And I also finished the next post for my blog book at formatbookinword.com.

The new web project is progressing and Bronson has been busy with the coding. Our planned launch for this is July.

There was a load of interesting material that landed in my inbox, and I should finish Fiction Writing for Dummies next week.

My long time friend shared the news that their baby son has started eating solid foods, and they're excited about that. He must enjoy every minute of his son, because before he knows it, that baby's going to be going to school, and then the years zip by.

Something else I've been looking at, although at this stage it's low on my priority list: the redesign and restructure of my personal site (www.colindunbar.com); I want to change this into my author site.

Going through my archives I found a few things that may be of interest to you... Hope you enjoy.
