A blog about writing and all things story…
Okay, it’s busy around my house in the weeks approaching Christmas, so little time for writing. However, I have completed the first nine chapters of my next novel, Garden of Lies, and am very happy with it. I had written the first draft, then read it and realized it needed to be written in third person as opposed to the first person I had written in. SO, the big undertaking of rewriting in third is nearly complete. Then I can move on to the the rest of the story. It’s a lot of work so I’m thrilled I realized this when not yet 100 pages in. WHEW!
Aside from that there’s the decorating, the shopping, the baking, the cleaning, the shopping, the wrapping, the
shopping and the stuffing of stockings. Oh, and then more shopping. What! You don’t decorate your scotch?
Last week I got my braces off and my teeth feel weird, but look great. I’ll be turning 60, yep, I’m rockin’ the big 60 this year and am so happy to not have braces for my birthday dinner. It’s a small insignificant goal, but a goal achieved just the same.
Because of the dental issues I’m dealing with this year I am not doing my usual volunteer work at Salvation Army Toy-n-Joy, and I miss it greatly. I’ll return next year. DONATE TOYS! DONATE MONEY! They do good work.http://www.salvationarmynw.org/
Oh yeah, and if you need a great book for a gift, check out Return To Sender. I know, cheeky, right. Ha!
