"Pineapple" books


My buddy Trish Wylie recently referred to one of her books as a 'pineapple' book. Huh?
She said writing the book was as painful as giving birth to a pineapple (metaphorically speaking, of course!)
In fact, Trish is having a Pineapple party for that book over at her blog at the moment so if you want to win a copy of the pineapple, head on over!

Trish got me thinking...because of what was happening in her personal life at the time she wrote the book, it became her pineapple.
Now I know exactly what she was talking about!
I haven't been well lately (thanks for all the private well-wishes!) and really struggling with sitting at a computer let alone writing anything.
Now I have revisions which have to get done but it's tough, really tough, when it's the last thing you want to do or worry about.

So unfortunately, I feel my own pineapples coming on...ouch!

More hugs on not being well Nic. It sucks.

Now Trish keeps trying to tell me that pineapple feelings can make for the best books in the end. I hope she's right!

Really sorry you have not been well, I hope you are feeling better and soon fighting fit again. Good luck with the revisions - and avoiding pineapples.

Love,

All my books are pineapples in as much as I do not know the joy of words gushing out of me.

Rest up, Nic. Sleep when you can, naps help.
