Welcome to my very first bloghop - I'm really excited to be hosting this today, alongside the fabulous Kyra Lennon.
We will be reading all of the posts, and giving a prize each to our favourite entries.
Kyra is offering a three chapter critique, and I'm giving a £10/$10 Amazon voucher (or £10 Waterstone's voucher, if you're in the UK and you prefer).
I never do anything by halves - I had twin imaginary friends called Iccance and Occance. I have no idea where they came from, or how long they stayed or how they came to be so called. They were neither boys nor girls but something entirely different.
And - boy! - they were very naughty.
They used to make my toys messy after I'd tidied them up, they used to smear my face with ice-cream when I was eating; and it was definitely them who pushed over our telly, right onto its screen and breaking it!
I'm certain that on more than one occasion they had to stand in the corner with their hands on their heads - separate corners, obviously, or they'd have got into even more trouble.
Beside that though, I can't remember much about them - so I went off to ask Mum. "There were two of them," she said incitefully.
"Yes, they were twins," I said.
"Oh, were they?" she replied, proving that poor memory runs in the family.
I remembered teaching them how to read, with the help of my blackboard and pure academic skill, until Mum recalled that it was my baby sister I taught, so she doesn't really count.
So that's the poorly remembered (and now immortalised)
story of Iccance and Occance.
Now I'm off to read yours!
