Hope your Easter is going or went well – we’ve had a restful time here, although as you can see, the boys posed for Easter photos – that’s Oscar in among the spring flowers.
Just a short post today as we lead up to the start of the April A to Z Blogging Challenge, which starts on Friday, with a Flash Fiction as well. Come by every day, and you can enter the Giveaway running through the month too. You saw my theme for the month last Monday.
I didn’t get much of Viridian System book 2 done in March, mainly through getting my April posts set up. So I decided to sign up for Camp NaNoWriMo as well as the AtoZ, on the basis that the discipline of writing 2000 words a day would spur me on to finish the first draft, whereas otherwise I’d have spent all day on visiting A to Z people. I’ll spend something like an hour a day visiting, and an hour on my comments here… and that will have to do. I have another book to write this year, too – so there’s no time to lose.
And if April is nice enough to put the guinea pigs out on the grass, I’ll really have to sort my time management out, since I can’t blog or write in the garden!
STOP PRESS: We have a private cabin set up for NaNo. If you’d like to join us, and you really want to do some work in April, then leave your Nano username in the comments and I’ll send you an invitation. There’s five of us already, with targets from 30,000 to 60,000 words, some first drafts, some editing, all sorts of genres. 🙂

Happy Easter to you too – and… er to the Easter-Guinea-PIg 😉
Thank you! And Oscar says thank you too.
Hi Jemima – well you’ve set out your goals … the A-Z is enough for me … I think I met you when you did your geology ones – love geology!
Bet Oscar enjoyed his time out in the garden – I have to say it was fairly windy and squally here … others were putting on soaked clothes to sort their animals out … I stayed in! But it’s mainly been dry … with some sun ..
Yes, I think it’s been a few years now, Hilary. It’s a great way of making friends 🙂
The guineas all got a couple of hours out in their run on Friday, when it was sunny, mild and no wind. Since then…. aaagh!
Nice photo 🙂
We spent the last week in and around Death Valley, with temps from about 40 to 86 (that’s from 4 to 30 for you Celcius types), and everything from dead calm to howling winds (some of those differences come from elevations from 280′ below sea level to over 5000′ above; some from changes in the weather).
I didn’t do a lick of work on my blog, my books, or anything but my personal journal, though some of that will get converted to a blog post.
That’s what holidays are for!
Happy Easter! And good luck with your April Nano.
