I have to say that ever since I signed up to the 'In search of Adam' campaign my flatmate has been taking it very seriously.



She spent the whole of this morning scrutinising every individual the length and breadth of Western Road. The fact that is was a beautiful sunny morning was obviously just a coincidence, for when I accused her of using the unfortunate Adam as an excuse for starting her tan, she was most indignant claiming that she was a Goth and sunlight was a complete anathema to her - pale skin being de rigeur among her kind. After which she flounced out of the flat and spent the rest of the afternoon down at the local police control room studying the input from the 3.9 million CCTVs that spy on this little city of ours.

Don't ask me how she managed to blag her way in but she spent a fruitless afternoon and came away suitably pale and wan.

Hi David,
Apologies for not responding sooner to your request to join the Novel Race - you'd be very welcome. I am about to add your link to the blogroll, but wanted to check if you wanted to be called David, DOT or, well, anything you like!

Hello Kate,

Sorry to be slow to reply, gradually getting to grips with the blog. David would be fine and thanks for including me, might actually motivate me to get on with the novel.

And thanks also to Liz and b.e.

Hello David, and welcome to the novel racers. Being part of the group definitely helps my motivation, I hope it works for you too.

DOT said...

Goodness, this is more complicated than I thought. Now I have people responding to my comments on my blog and I have respond similarly - l feel as if I am talking to myself but obviously not. How strange! But thank you all for your welcomes , including Liz and Zinnia.

Yay! You're a novel racer too!

Yay!

So glad that my campaign is being taken seriously with you.
