Happy last day of winter … the winter during which I’ve been painting furiously for an upcoming art show and totally ignoring the First Draft of the Manuscript for Book Two.
I can pinpoint the day I left the manuscript exactly … the thirty first of May … ‘twas that day I backed up the document, put a spare copy onto a USB, locked it away and told myself to joyfully go forth, ignoring the damn thing utterly and completely for as long as possible.
In the meantime, I had a Big Birthday:
Travelled to the Land of the Long White Hobbit Cloud:
We planted lots of bamboo:
Our family adopted a pair of shelter kitties:
And I painted lots of vintage cars and puppy dogs:
Here’s a detail shot of Fergus:
So, now it’s time to begin ploughing through every single one of those 90,115 words before the manuscript is sent off for The Dreaded Structural Edit.
Stand by for lots of sneak peeks over the next few months – some of which might make the final cut and some which may die a sad but noble death.
Thanks for sticking with me, see ya soon,
