Three days until deadline
Words of book written: 104,680.
Dead Darlings file: 9,765.
New words written today: 838.
Weather: I think there might have been sun, at one point.
State of mind: slightly manic.
Hours of editing: 7.
Hours of editing whilst wearing happy hat: 5. (It took me a while to get snappy.)
Moment of unrelieved pleasure: watching The Pigeon’s face as she chased her ball.
Food eaten: grilled chicken, roasted tomatoes, watercress soup.
Moment the perspective police bashed down the door: 6.15pm, when a story came on the news about gangs sexually abusing children. In dear old Blighty? What the hell?
Which led to the Motto of the Day: Can’t complain. (Not original, but true.)
Apology of the day: to the Dear Readers, who are not getting much blog.
Pictures of the day:
Did you say BALL?
