Restoration Day Gets Starred

Restoration Day has gained its first Goodreads review, from fellow author Barbara Howe. You can read the review here, or pop across to her site, barbarahowewriter.com (though every time I try I get a Server Not Found notice – you may be more fortunate).

4 stars
Barbara gave it four stars (out of five), which is probably what I would have given it if I was prepared to negotiate the complexities of rating a book I’ve read in three separate versions which I now struggle to tell apart. (Stop me if I refer to Pwyll or Cashlin…)

Barbara writes “I skimmed the first two chapters, was intrigued by the third, and by the end of the fourth I was hooked.” Just the sort of useful feedback a writer can put to work on their next book! 🙂 I fully intend that readers of The Wound of Words will be hooked from chapter one…

Getting Things Done: A Season of Experiment

Tarore of Te Waharoa. Joan of Arc. Anne Frank. Elizabeth of Hungary. Sophie Scholl. Therese of Lisieux. Wilfred Owen. Mrs Beeton.

What do all these people have in common? They all died at a younger age than I am now, all having left their mark upon the world (whether they knew it or not).

Even if I live to be a hundred (unlikely), I am still nearly a third of the way through my life. And should I happen to die tomorrow (possibly more likely than the die-at-100 scenario, albeit still fairly unlikely), I do not think I will pop off content with how I have spent my time on this wandering orb.
