Yet another refugee from DT novel in a year
« on: October 13, 2006, 03:45:34 PM »
Hello,
I am another who has been on the Daily Telegraph Novel in a Year treadmill since the first week; saw a recommendation for this by BigT.
Got one self-published book on antiques, nearly sold out, to my credit; coach hammer, shot & discus in athletics and working on a novel on the Great Revolt of 1381.
Retired from Datacomms installation (when in doubt, kick the computer), and now wondering how I ever had time to go to work.
Hoping to be able to help, and to be helped on my way.

Richard

Warm welcome RichardW. :)

I love antiques - an invertebrate collector and visitor to antiques fairs.

Thanks for all the welcoming messages. Somewhat tied up with 30th anniversary and getting my CD together to go with my book on Scottish Provincial Silver.
Still not retired from hurling lumps of metal around as I can still whup plenty of oppositio, if my monsters aren't available; satisfyingly, I can't beat them, working on the old "if you can't beat 'em, coach 'em" principle.
I take it the invertebrates are things like ammonites and trilobites, or are you heading Jurassic Park-wards with insects in amber?

'Invertebrate' as in completely spineless and can't stop myself from reaching for the cheque book when I see something interesting - pottery and illustrated children's books mostly. Don't have much in the way of silver, Richard. What's hot in the market at the moment?  ;)

Hi RichardW, welcome to the site and enjoy. Oliver
Where there is kindness to animals, everything else may be taken for granted.
Judge a person's character by how they treat animals and how that person will treat those who can do nothing for them.
