A Welcome to Cyber Space

Yikes, I've been dragged, kicking and screaming into the current era! I've got a blog! This from a gal who's been known to lose whole manuscripts in a single bound because I thought back-up was a car manouver.

Let me introduce myself. I'm a girl from Oz, Tasmania, actually. That's the tiny island down the bottom where natives are reported to have 2 heads. What's the problem? Two heads are better than one, they say, though it does get expensive in hats. Fortunately I don't have designer tastes.

I have a sometimes husband and 2 wild and wooly children, currently on the state's endangered list for drawing on the walls of our flat. Shhh! That's supposed to be a secret. Don't want to be evicted.

I'd like to say I write for a living, but mostly I write for a lot less than that. I'm currently editing a romantic suspense with a dippy, pig-shooting nurse from Outback Australia , a scrummy Latino doctor from Colombia, and his Asperger suffering nephew. Why nephew? Well, it's a long story- actually, it's only about 90,000 words at the mo, but it's growing daily. Sad to say, I have experience with all these elements but the Latin scrumminess. Pity that.

Well, enough for today. Post a comment. Drop me a clue- some say I'm short on them. Who knows, I may get blogger addicted like all my friends. I believe scientists are currently working on a cure over in the States, but so far addicts appear to be irretrievable. Please tell me it's not too late. If it is, run! Save yourselves. I'll go down with the shi.. um, ship.

Welcome to blogging!

Welcome to the mystical world of blogging. Careful, before you realized what's happened you'll have a MySpace...that's when it really goes downhill.

My munchkins also have issues with their artistic endeavors ended up all over my walls. Two words...washable crayons. Gods gift to mothers :)

I'll add you to my blog roll,
Best,
Kim

Dayna_Hart said...

Babe, you certainly have a way with words.

Michelle Arroyo said...

I have another two words, Magic Eraser, as in Mr. Clean's. IT really works.

Way to go Babe! (on the blog that is.) I'm clueless too, but theres hope for us at Divas.

Silma said...

Oh...this is very addictive. *evil grin* Now you're trapped and can't get out. Bwwwaaaahhhhaaa!

Well lookee here, a whole pile of posts. I don't usually get such a full mailbox except when the tacky christmas cards roll around. Welcome Amanda (my mentee extraordinaire), Kimberly(fellow rug rat referee), Diane, Dayna, Michelle, and Silma (hey, you giving back that chicken suit yet? No drool stains on it either, girl). Thanks for dropping in. So, tell me, what's a blog roll and can I have one if I'm on a no-carb diet?

Sela Carsen said...

LOL. I can barely remember how to do it because I haven't updated my own blog roll in so long! But maybe someone more Blogger-savvy than I can help.

Welcome to blogging!

Bebe Thomas said...

Hiya, Babe! Adding your blog to my must read list.

Kristen Painter said...

This has to be one of the funniest blogs I've read in a long time. Welcome to the wild world of blogging!

Shelley Munro said...

Welcome to the world of blogging, Babe! I'm in NZ. I just went outside and waved to you. Did you see?

Babe King said...

Hey, Shelly- was that you? I thought it was a sheep. Next time take off your jumper so the myopic Aussie writer will wave back.
