Children’s Stories Challenge Jan 18th 2016


I am so glad I finished the book just before New Year, although I still have a bit of last minor editing so then the book can be sold very soon. I have been working out the best way to work out about how people will purchase the book and thought of a Paypal button on my WordPress blog and deposit into account. Contacting everyone one on one through WordPress or Facebook etc is more meaningful and also getting to know what everyone is doing and able to support in their activities. I had put a lot of time into getting the book finished and now have more time to look at friends and followers activities before starting my last 4 children’s stories and activities sometime this year. Hoping you all having a good New Year. Regards Madonna

Tonight I FINISHED my book and now its off to the Printers!!! I have spent a lot of time on it lately and was wondering if the end would come. The book downloaded onto Blurb and already on its way. Great thing Cyberspace. Only one book ordered at the moment until I can afford more and ordered a PDF version that has been downloaded. It’s great that there is a good quality PDF that can be kept and I will probably put on USB or CD. Robert has asked some friends to come over for a cuppa and nibbles not sure if its New Year’s Eve or New Year’s afternoon so may be some visitors both days. Now I can get more into doing some more around home. It’s exciting there are two spaghetti squash growing and looks like the peaches are getting bigger. Hope you had a nice Christmas. We went to our friend’s home in our town and visiting family. Good time together and nice to be in our town. I have enjoyed being with friends outside our town and when we lived away but this year looked forward to being local. A blessed New Year to you all. Madonna  P.S  I will be keeping my blog and catching up on reading blogs that I follow. Next year sometime I will start on my last 4 children’s stories with activities. had motivation lately and have learnt to put more effort into doing more on my stories to finish sooner. Sometimes it takes time for things to come together.

All the stories grammar is done.  It took a while today and yesterday but easy enough through the Grammarly program, going between the Booksmart program for my stories and copying to Grammarly. Tomorrow I will read the stories and proofread as I go and make sure all makes sense.  Then it will be checking the Acknowledgements list and Table of Contents. I am mostly happy with the setting out of the activities.

More small spaghetti squash coming on and the cactus fruit is green and waiting to go a pink colour. Tastes a bit like a soft apple. Rain needed out here in the Outback. A break tomorrow night as Carols here and Christmas day Robert and I with friends. First Christmas been home in about 4 years, will be good. Until tomorrow, have a restful night. Madonna
