Backlash...

Gosh, I'm quite surprised.  I didn't get as many hateful comments as I expected on the Daily Mirror site, and none at all on The People article.  Could it be that I'm actually making people realise I'm not the evil witch they think I am?  Or have they figured that I will justify what I do in any argument or discussion I have?

Yet again, I have been criticised purely for what I look like, rather than what I do.  It's hilarious how shallow some people can be, and quite sad that they would accept what I do if I looked like Cheryl Cole!  Ah well, it will never change, but neither will I :)  I'm not planning on pushing a lettuce leaf around a plate just to be accepted by the small minded anonymous few who wish to comment on my life.  I have loved me, and my looks, since before Gok started championing the idea.  Many would probably tell me to look in the mirror and 'get over myself' - as one email advised - but surely confidence and self-esteem are far more attractive than a size 10 with body image issues - because skinny women have those too :)

The positive comments have far outweighed the negative comments I have received.  I have had numerous emails supporting me, many more asking me out, and apparently I'm now famous in Turkey and Taiwan :)   The first time I hit the press I became a star in India, but according to Facebook I am now the hottest thing in Europe and the Far East.  Some of the mails and friend requests I have received have been hilarious and I will post the best here soon, but it's nice to know, I may not be what the British public deem 'beautiful' but it seems I am stunning in Turkey! :)  It must be the blonde hair and the child bearing hips lol

Anyway, I wanted to say a big thank you to all my followers and friends who have supported me, and a big 'Whatever!!' to those who criticised me.  It won't stop me doing what I do, I simply love it too much :)


Writer's Block....

I've got writer's block.  There I've said it.  I can't put anything I want to say into words.  I have to though.  I have people waiting for me to produce something witty and interesting, but so far - nothing.

I was advised a while ago, by a dubious literary agent, that I should save my best writing for the book, but that has meant my blog has suffered, badly.  But now I've started writing for my blog again I just can't say what I want!  It's driving me mad!!

I used to write for fun and didn't care if anyone liked it or not.  I didn't mind if my followers found my writing immature or incompetent.  But now my writing has to step up, a considerable amount.  With offers and potential offers in the pipeline, now is the time to get serious.

I am my own worst enemy.  I am incredibly self-critical and I dissect everything I ever produce, finding fault at every point.  I've done that most of my life with practically everything I have ever produced, but it made me strive harder to be the best I could be.  Lately I've criticised my writing even more, because it's under such scrutiny, far more than when I started my blog.  But I've decided to just write as I speak, and speak as I find.  I won't ever produce a literary classic, but I didn't enter the world of the serial mistress to do that.

After recently reading the Fifty Shades trilogy (while the whole world went crazy for it, and it became an instant best-seller) I have realised that what you write about is far more important than how you write it.  A word of advice, the first Fifty Shades book is badly written, but it should act as a filter for those who want good grammar and wish to avoid repetitive drivel - the second and third should be avoided at all costs.  Especially if biting lips and breath catching grates on your patience after one chapter.

So, if Ms James can write three best-sellers, and become a millionaire overnight, I can sure as hell write one, a few columns, and a blog.  Maybe now the summer is here I will work better in the garden, rather than being distracted by the ironing pile, or the washing up, in my house.

York iPlayer....

For those who missed it yesterday, here is my interview with Jonathan Cowap on Radio York.  He gave me time to speak, and the response was 'varied' to say the least.  The consensus of opinion around York seems to be 'she's no better than a whore', but hopefully I managed to make them see my perspective.  Maybe one day these people will open their minds, look past their anger, and listen to me! :)

The lovely Jonathan at least gave me the opportunity to answer my critics, and clarify a few points.  All in all, it was a great interview.

I'm on from the top of the show for about half an hour, and then I'm back on about 1hr 51mins in.  Enjoy.

And I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend xxx

Radio York...

I'm sorry my blog seems to be short posts and links right now, but obviously it's a bit busy.  Had lots to do in the press (again) and lots to sort out in my private life.  Normal service shall be resumed very soon :)

I'm going to be on BBC Radio York today at 9am.

You can listen live here - or I'll post a link to iplayer later.

Heart attack....

No, don't worry, not mine, and not one of my married men, although it seems they may need to visit the GP for a check up after being around me :)

Very interesting article.

The Mirror...

Oh it's going to be a busy day.  I wonder how many death threats I'll get on this fine sunny morning :)

For those who are wondering what I'm waffling on about:

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/real-life-stories/mistress-who-only-dates-married-844040

But I'm also a headline - in fact I'm the first story - on the main home page of the Mirror!  Ooops.  I thought everyone was bored of it by now, I didn't realise the Mirror would go for it in such a big way.  How funny!!!

So, if I go quiet after today, you know I've been tracked down and murdered in my sleep by someone who has missed the whole point of the article :)

Have a fabulous sunny day everyone xxxxxx

Press...

For those who follow me and are interested, I will be in The People newspaper's colour magazine (Take It Easy) tomorrow (Sunday) as part of an infidelity feature, and in the women's section of The Mirror on Wednesday.  They are both interesting articles and should make fascinating, if controversial, reading.

For those who hate my guts and wish me dead, there will be pictures so you can throw darts at them all week :)  Fill your boots!!!! lol

Lovehoney.....

I  hope you all caught the Lovehoney documentary last night.  It was hugely entertaining and very interesting.  And it's lovely to see that even in hard times (scuse the pun) we are still having fantastic sex!

If you missed it, you can still catch it here for quite a while.  Give it a go.  It might open your eyes.  And remember you can order from Lovehoney via my page, so please feel free to go and browse, it is one of the best online companies I have ever used.
