The New English Schools Curriculum for 2014 - A Step too Far.

I was contacted by a school publisher to write books for the new curriculum coming into schools in stages until 2015-6. I eagerly accepted, visions of my fiction being also accepted. However, having read the detailed formula for producing the English Book for Key Stage 2, I realised there would be no time for my own fiction, what was needed was a mathematical ability in the setting out of the material and a greater computer skill than I possess. Now I realise just how much of a children's fiction writer I really am. It was a step too far.

As if there wasn't enough to do! Grrrr....

Having to begin this blog again, my photographs were removed by Google, something to do with Picasa I believe, and I joined the ranks of so many others who had their blog ruined. However, not much good sulking in a corner, and I do like sharing with you all, so here goes, begin again. Thanks so much for sharing, hugs, Carole.
