Yes, I know I've been missing for weeks- sorry.
I didn't realise how tired out I was until my brain went on strike and I began sleeping late on a weekday- very unusual for me...
This year I've been able to do more concentrated writing than I have before- at least 15,000 words on the novella since mid-January. It may not seem a lot, but it's the most I've written in six months before.
(I just need to get my busy weeks organised better, so I can get a few writing sessions in...)
As soon as normality returns I'll get the last two chapters of the first draft completed, and then the really hard work starts with the 2nd draft- putting flesh on the bones of the basics that I've been concentrating on so far.
There are a few 'information needed' queries that I need to delve into, so I'm making a list to work through over the remaining summer holidays.
I'm thinking about going to this year's Festival of Romance (November) but haven't actually mentioned it to my OH yet- who will have to hold the domestic fort if I do go...:-)
As my short story writing has finally improved, I'm going to make an effort to write a few more before the year ends.
I also have to catch up on my reading- both paperback and e-books.
Serena is still lacking a website, but she does now have an e-mail address. So I have to make some decisions there too.
So I may have ground to a halt in one way, I realise that the 'to do' list is building up... :-)
