Butterfly mind... (and Day 28 of the rather unsuccessful writing challege)

OK, maybe butterfly mind is too flattering a description. Maybe a more accurate one would be: concentration span somewhere between that of a gnat and a goldfish.
That's not to say I haven't been working on the YA idea. I have. I've passed 20,000 words now, but more importantly, I've fleshed out how it could work over more than one book. But with no deadline beyond my self-imposed one, my gnatfish brain has been looking for other sources of stimulation (it always happens at 20,000 words). And I have found it in the form of a NEW blog:
where I am reviewing books, well, from the point of view of a writer: what I have learned about style, structure and storytelling (and other things not beginning with S) from reading the best-sellers.
I'd love to see you over there: there are already reviews for The Return, What a Carve Up! AND How NOT to Write a Novel. I am also welcoming guest posts so if you've learned a lot from a novel or non-fiction book, leave a comment and I will send you the info about contributing.
I suppose I ought to get round to doing some paid for writing at some point soon, eh?

Someone (a novel racer) posted a link to your new blog, so I had a look yesterday. There's lots of information there: well worth a study. Thank you.

Good luck with the rest of the challenge.
