Good morning, everyone!
I see no-one has volunteered for the coffee morning, so I wondered if you would all like to come to mine? I'm afraid there's slippy, sloppy muddy Spaniel and Labrador footprints all over the kitchen floor from the early morning walkies, but you are welcome to tea, coffee, biscuits and toast - just don't take your shoes off!
I have an idea. Over the last few months, my life of work and home has yielded some brilliant ideas for short story plots, but there is no way I can use them because (a) I might get the sack, and (b) I don't think my husband would be too pleased if I made up a story about a numpty who managed to poke himself in the eye with the tip of a pool cue and gouge a piece out of his eyeball (tee hee!!!!). Neither would my youngest son like it to be widely known that he embarrassingly ended up in A & E at 2.30 am on New Year's Day, after being collected by his mum from a shrubbery in London Road.
I also have some eyebrow-raising stories involving people I know. I can't use them, but other novel racers can!
We ought to use our Private Place to swap plot ideas that we couldn't use ourselves, because of breaches of confidentiality etc, but that someone else could make use of.
What do you all think?
