Dating Fish Diary Cartoon Blog To Be Tweeted

Have decided to create a cartoon blog out of the watercolour visuals that I am currently working on to accompany the dating diary. The cartoon blog visuals will be twittered in installments on a timed schedule one by one. Still waiting for the diary to be processed - am keeping busy - 19 sept. My dating diary progress blog is at http://datingdiarydiary.blogspot.com/
11 Oct A new version of 'The Seaside' will be published in the anthology 'Foward Press Regionals 2010 - The Midlands and The East of England'.
3 Nov Have prepared some basic interview notes, some background notes and some detailed notes on the dating diary. Technical issues are causing the delay - who knows how many variations of a rich text file document there are ! Am number one for 'Dating Diary' in google web search.
4th Nov while my actual dating diary manuscript dates and ages due to technical issues etc, I am busy with all of my plots and plans. My character goes on abit of a journey within the cartoon blog. I am having so much fun with it I might as well forget about the dating diary and just do the cartoon blog !!!

12 July. Waiting for the diary to be processed. It might need a second revision. Only 3 people have read the diary.
27 July. There has been a slight delay with the publishing of the diary. Should be out in about two weeks. I won't be posting anymore eflyers until the book is in my hands. Have done 3 interviews so far. Writing interview notes is not my favourite form of writing but I shall learn to love it. Am also working on some watercolour visuals to accompany the diary - the visuals worry me more than the text.
6 August. Still waiting for the covers to be processed.
10 August. Covers are now finalized. Had to come up with some chapter titles overnight to create abit of spacing inside the diary. I need to bring the diary up to 48 pages to keep the cost of production down. It was a choice between providing some black and white images or creating chapter titles. I quite like the chapter titles that I have chosen.

Will be moving from graphics art to watercolours once the diary is 'finally' out.


Am the writer, proofreader, producer ( oversee production ), artist, graphics artist ( will get some help ), website creator, search engine coordinator, publicity agent, model ( costume for website ) and photography editor. I'm sure there's more...

My Publicity Dream Nightmare

This poem was written about 3 years ago. It needs more work on it - it doesn't quite work and the experience of celebrity that the poem describes feels very dated. I have decided to post it anyway.

Saturday, 1 May 2010


1 May 2010. Am still not convinced by any of the 3 major parties. Am tempted to vote for the Green Party.
Am currently without the internet at home - error 678 - so it could be anything. Back online in two weeks - hopefully my dating diary script will be ready by then.
7th May No Green party option where I live. Am still disconnected from the internet at home. I found out yesterday that I can't use my own illustrations for the front and back covers of the dating diary. On the plus side, the diary will be published quickly.

Here is a link to my first ebook...
14 May Still more to do on the text for the dating diary but the bulk is now done. Am also busy trying to decide between two visuals for the front cover. One is colourful and the other one, just one colour. Am thinking more and more about the publicity side of things. Will provide a poster for a local bookstore which will hopefully be selling some hard copies. I will be testing the diary on an english teacher.

The Alice Effect

No Cap on the Alice Effect
I am not looking forward to going cold turkey when all this Alice in Wonderland mania finally subsides. Everyday I am feasting and drip-feeding my imagination with all things Alice. And the biggest high of all is yet to come - to experience my first 3D film and it so happens to be Alice in Wonderland, one of my all time favourite books, directed and produced by Tim Burton, one of my all time favourite directors.
Some new Alice inspired tags for my dating diary below...

Mad for Alice

Jane Air is Mad for Alice
Alice inspired tags now added to my dating diary :
secret key, strange dreams, surrealism

Unwitting Leaks to my Vampire Diarist

Unwitting Leaks to My Vampire Diarist
I like this blog title so I guess I had better write the post to go with it. I found out only two days ago that my long-distant friend and phone-buddy has been secretly notetaking my side of our conversations for the last 3 months. They have been ringing me up throughout the day to find out what I have been doing : what I eat for breakfast ( profiteroles ) ; who I talk to online ( everyone ) ; details of my dating-diary-in-progress ( see below ) - all information to give to the tabloid press once I am established in my career. Although to be honest, so much of my life is now online, I should think I will get there first.

Dating Diary update

2nd Jan 2010. I know what's going into the dating diary but there is still the hard work of structuring it. There will be visuals to accompany the diary but apart from the front and back covers, I will do these after the publication of the diary. I will have to charge a fee to read the diary - a necessity I'm afraid - but I will try and keep it affordable. I would prefer for it to be accessible to many rather than a few. For the moment, my publicity campaign will be online.
3rd Jan. Am having to meditate alot lately in order to rest and refresh my mind and help to control my financial fears. Am in the midst of a personal transformation...
