…Because I live for (literary) speed. In the past three weeks, I have achieved, in no particular order:
– Completed edits for ‘Oracle’s Fire’. Good lord. I was supposed to reduce the word count on this pass: somehow, even with all my judicious cuts, it has increased to 167000. Various plot creases have been smoothed out. Character arcs are wound up. The story is finished: long live the story. This trilogy will go out in style, my friends.
– Scheduled and carried out child’s vaccinations, before school checks, school visits and a birthday party. Revamped earthquake stocks.
– Wrapped up a blog party, completed a couple of interviews and guest posts, organised a trip for three to Europe with a phenomenally noodly itinerary, and finally lost it after noticing – too late – that one of our flights required us to arrive at the airport at 4am with a five-year old. @(#*$&
– Took notes for two further short stories due asap.
I am woman, hear me roar. Actually, hear me grumble a bit, then settle down to a nice cuppa.
