I am over the MOON that Ice Wolves has been shortlisted for the Children's Prize. The folks at Readings have such amazing bookshops (at which I'm a regular presence!) and to see myself on this list is a huge, huge thrill!

*taps mic* Hello, if you are a reader of my books, you may enjoy my MG fantasy series. It has wolves, dragons, shapeshifters, magical inventions and feasts. I wrote it for the version of you who used to secretly read under the blankets, and it will make you feel that way again.

Eeeee, congrats to you too! I'm due somewhere in the first half of May, so aiming to get drafts off my desk so I can enjoy some mat leave.

Oh, I feel you. I was sick as can be right up to 20 weeks. Still not ace, but definitely improved. So much sleep happening! Epic 2.5 hour nap in the middle of the day today.

Oof. Today's been SUCH a hard writing day. I have pregnancy-induced carpal tunnel in both hands and barely slept last night. Can't focus. But I've written 73K in the last 50 days, so I'm reminding myself that sometimes you just gotta walk away and try again tomorrow.

I'd say brutal honesty only makes for a better book if it works for the recipient. It super doesn't work for me -- I write a better book (as you know!) when I also get feedback that focuses on what's working. It lets me loosen my grip on what's not.

Yeah, I've never tried to use them while charging, but I've plugged them into my laptop, and also into the jack on a plane to watch TV with bonus noise cancelling.

I'm pretty sure they have a wired mode -- mine certainly have a cable that plugs into the headphone jack on my laptop, if that (said the SF writer, halp) counts as wired mode?

I'm honestly asked quite rarely -- most people don't care one way or the other, and the occasional query tends to come from a place of 'I hope all is well'. I just say "I just don't" in a friendly manner, and that always settles it.

Literally not the first time this week someone has told a story about me falling asleep during dinner. Tour is tough! (And that one, turned out I had the flu. I promise, only the flu would have kept me from screaming over a premise like this!)

I adore my Bose Quiet Comfort 35ii -- they were $$, but they're incredibly comfortable over my ears, and really something at blocking the noise. Not sure anything will erase a jackhammer, but they'll do a lot. They're the only thing I own that I religiously store in its case!

Just call an ambulance or get to the hospital. They won't care if you're wrong, and if you're right, you're giving them the best possible chance of saving your life.

On this day in 2002, an amazing team of doctors and nurses saved my dad's life, and gave us many more wonderful years together that I will always treasure. So here's today's message: If you think it might be a heart attack, don't worry about looking stupid if you're wrong.
