As with the last donation I received I would just like to thank Paula for her contribution to my blog. She very generously contributed some money to help with the running of the site and I would just like to take this moment to express, how very grateful I am Paula!
Yesterday I pointed out that the domain registration was running out on Wordsformwindows.com and that it would have to revert to danposwriting.wordpress.com (how boring aha).
Step up Monica Pierce! Monica, who runs a brilliant blog called Stalking Fiction, just so happened to read my post from yesterday and she sent me a quick email saying she would donate the money to host the blog to me.
So a round of applause for Monica! Wordsformwindows.com can carry on as it always has.
Monica told me that every year on her birthday she tries to do something nice for someone else, and not have the whole day be about her (it just so happens that she has the same birthday as me too! (25th June)). I thought this was very inspiring and selfless acts always leave a mark on me, because as humans we are selfish normally.
And I don’t mean selfish in a horrible way, but everything we do we usually do for ourselves, whether if it is eating food so we carry on living, or do something we love to make ourselves happy. I try to help people where I can and I think I do a pretty good job, but doing something for someone else for YOUR birthday, is unprecedented in my experience. I was just very moved and it has helped me want to be even MORE selfless, and take a leaf out of Monica’s book!
Check out her blog and if you like what you read follow her and keep up to date with her writing. You can also keep up to date with her books, her first novel “Girl Under Glass” will be available in July 2012

Hi just a quick post to let you know that a fellow student of mine has published her book onto the Kindle. The description from Amazon reads:
The Animal Olympics are coming to London in a few weeks time and Hopper the Kangaroo, Flipper the Walrus and Fluffy the Rabbit are getting excited. They have all entered a competition to take part in the Games. Follow their journey from the Opening Ceremony through to the Awards Ceremony to see who will win the most medals…
Whilst I haven’t read this particular book I have read her work before in class and I can tell you that she is a very good writer, and for less than a £1 you can’t go wrong!
Check it out here.
Time to go to bed, up early for a driving lesson so I think it is time to go get in bed and read this beauty.
It’s funny, I really wasn’t sold on the first book Sabriel until literally the very last chapter when I was like “actually that was an amazing book” and I instantly went to Amazon and got Lirael and Abhorsen, the third book.
It’s a shame that for some reason they aren’t on the Kindle but some of the author’s other work is, don’t know why aha.
