Adventure before dementia

Reading - Spuffy and Bible Notes!

Dad had no internet link this weekend which was slightly annoying, however it did mean that I didn't get myself side-tracked.

In my spare time I have done a lot of reading.

I am one of the judges on one of the competitions that is running at present.  This is not the first time I have done it.  When I originally offered it was because I read a lot of Spuffy I thought that it would be re-reading some of the stuff I had already read.  I soon discovered this wasn't quite what I had to do!  This set of reading involves 2 different catagories and includes - 

1)  W.I.P.'s ... And most of you know I don't like reading those!

2)  Cross-overs ... one of which in a setting that I would not have chosen to read.

3)  Human

4)  Stories from 3 on my f-list!!!!!

5)  Stories I had already read and (fortunately) loved, as I know have to re-read to note upon the specific points of the set category.

6)  Stories from a web site I never even look at!

So I have 16 Spuffy stories to read ... on the way back here, from Mum and Dad's, it made me start to think about what I like about Spuffy stories.  For those writers that I am writing, let me assure you that this is not what I am "marking" ... these have just stimulated my brain ... scary thought!

As well as reading the Spuffy stories I have also helped my Dad by doing a final proof-read of the book that he has finished recently.  It is brilliant that my Dad, at 83, has just completed a book about the prophesies within the book of "The Revelation" in The Bible.
