    1. Thank you, Naomi:-)

      The moon has always entranced me. I used sneak outside into the garden at night as a child and dance beneath the moon around the lawn in barefeet, wearing a flowered housecoat from my dressing up box.


  1. I bet there’s a tor somewhere near you, where you could go for a moonlit leap. I’ve heard it’s the sort of magical and strange thing that happens in Wales from time to time.


    1. Thank you so much. Yes, I agree–“tor” is a wonderful word. It always summons up all manner of historical and mystical visions in my mind, and I love the solitary simple beauty of them as the sit there, commanding amazing views.


      1. I’d love to! I’m kinda busy this week, but if you send some details to rumpydog at hotmail dot com, I could be thinking about it and maybe write up next weekend?


      2. That’s great:-) I’ll email you when I have a moment. Like you, this week is busy, as have set myself to the end of this month to finish my children’s novel, which is a fantasy story full of some exceptionally odd dogs.


      3. Well, you know how it is, don’t you? I’d like to be able to give you a release date, but there are many mountains to climb on the way there, which are far harder than the actual writing of the novel. First there’s the quest story, then the questing reality of capturing an agent and a publisher. It is akin to the tasks of Hercules in pain and effort D:

        I love my novel after five rewrites and the dumping of twelve thousand words, so that’s a good start 🙂
