I've never been good at accents. Ask me to voice more than two teddies and it can quickly descend into a picnic hosted by Jim Davidson.

My knowledge of animals isn't great either. Beyond the Farmyard and pages of 'Dear Zoo' it's pretty much all guesswork.

Waterstones NaNoWriMo Project

As part of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) I was asked if I'd like to take part in the Waterstones NaNoWriMo Story Cubes Project.
