Free IQ Test

What's your IQ? - What's your IQ?

I don't know how accurate or relevant this test is but I was surprised by my score. I'm a little dubious though as according to my result I would qualify for Mensa by being in the top 2-3 % of the population.

Something someone said to me years ago put me in my place: "Lynette, for an intelligent person you do some really daft things!" That just about sums me up. Others see me as intelligent and I honestly have some commonsense but you would not believe some of the silly things I do!

I'm so excited!

I've registered with The Open University to take the Diploma in Literature and Creative Writing. I'm really looking forward to it. I'm going to take Creative Writing [level 2] to begin with then one of these courses from [level 3]:

Advanced creative writing

Shakespeare: text and performance

The nineteenth-century novel

Twentieth-century literature: texts and debates

It has made me consider whether I could go on to take a BA Honours Degree in either English Language and Literature or just Literature. Not sure yet.

So come September it will be back to school for me and I can't wait!

Just got a great five star review from Pat McCain for A Taste of Honey

Lynette Rees improves with each book she publishes. The talented Welsh writer weaves her stories through the small country of Wales, drawing her readers in. A Taste Of Honey flows like honey through the ups and downs of the main characters. Her heroine, Fran Santini, works at a second and secret occupation which brings her into grave danger. Travis O'Connell, once in the opposing corner, now attempts to protect her--much to Fran's dismay.

It's very easy to get hooked on Ms. Rees's books. Her characters are all people you might know and either like or dislike, nothing bland here. ..
