Links


Yesterday I woke to a world surrounded in mist - again not what you expect here in Dubai but I do love a misty/foggy morning. Brings out the romantic soul in me. It's not something that Dubai normally offers for the romantic heart however it does offer wonderful sunsets and blissful sea breezes. One can't have everything.

This leads to one of the links. I have now been an expat for 20 years. I have embraced it with open arms which considering my background may seem strange. However in my travels I have watched people struggle to cope with their new environment especially those who haven't really choosen to take the plunge. The Weekend FT has a great article on the subject today here as many with the current market situation are being given no choice but to relocate for the sake of a job.

Now onto writing stuff. A new agent blog has appeared to shares some useful tips and links... here. In one of her posts Kate directs us to this link which reminds me not to expect too much as far as earning anything from my writing! Finally here's a great all round site with sooo much I can't begin to list (thanks to Zinnia for pointing me in this direction!)

Thanks Liz, I've opened a tab for each one and I'm going to look now.

I wanted to come overseas; I love it here but still I found it quite difficult!
