Novel Progress

After spending time writing my novel instead of going out on a Friday night, imagine how upset I was when I returned the next After day and couldn’t find my last 800 words! 😦

Now, I use Scrivener, which is fantastic as it saves as soon as you stop typing for 2 seconds. It also backs up on closing. I usually save it to a USB also but was rushing and forgot. However, I have complete faith in Scrivener, so after much sulking and downing a large bacon sandwich, I went in search of my text. And guess what? I found it.

I am not good with computers but I feel like an IT genius. So where was it? – In some programme I have never heard of under wordpad! I have no idea how it got there but I was one happy chicken I can tell you.



I have been a Personal Trainer for about 23 years and I still love training and the buzz it gives me but writing has always been a part of my life. I think I wrote my first book at the age of 10. My grandmother said I would be a novelist one day and she was right - as all grandmothers often are! I live with my boyfriend Carl, we have 2 huskies who make us laugh every day, except when pulling us into bushes to chase after squirrels! I have also written a Diet and Fitness book for women over 40.
