Here's the deal. I've been single since time immemorial. So, in an attempt to remedy my eternal singledom, and to get over my nauseatingly pathological fear of dates, I've decided to challenge myself. The challenge? To go on one first date a week for a year! So in 52 weeks time, I will have either found my Mr Right, or I'll stay forever Miss Write. This is what happens...

The Rules

Here are the rules to the 52 First Dates challenge...

1. A first date must be had once a week, EVERY week, for a year, that's 52 dates in 52 weeks.

2. Taking someone home after a drunken night on the cider does NOT count.

3. Second and third dates are allowed, I must continue first dates unless there are exceptional mitigating circumstances. For example, God forbid, the start of a relationship.

4. Each date must be blogged.

The 27 Hour Novella for Red Nose Day 2015

Hi folks!

Well, it turns out that I went and did yet another of Mark Watson's ridonculous marathon gigs for charity, 27 hours to be precise, and in the process succeeded (if success can be measured by survival) in writing a 20,000 word novella. And as proof, I went and published it, so if you want to see effects what extreme sleep deprivation and excessive gin consumption have on the creative brain, you can find out right HERE! with all proceeds going to Red Nose Day / Comic Relief:

Enjoy. I mean, good luck.
