Morning. It's actually raining. Wow. Nice. I have to try to get some of the kitchen ceiling painted then I'm off to the dentist for a checkup and stuff. I might even take the library books back and post a card to Viv that has very few days to wing its way around the world LOL! OMG! Later today I hope to do some writing, just because I'm on a roll doing a final, final check on Safe, and I wanted it finished in time for Viv's birthday. Then I'll be getting back to my other buddy, Nick and his doctor friend Vanessa *g* in Breathing Space. Nick and Ness. There's something missing there though, maybe it's AJ... so I'm giving that some thought in the back of my head while I paint. I considered dumping the whole thing and starting over... it's only a hundred pages or so at this stage. I dunno.

Well, I'd better paint, because as Viv said, the day could just dissolve and before I know it, it's three o'clock and the boys are on their way home and where would I be then? There is just SO much I could do... should do, need to do, want to do... I need to live for a long, long time, huh. I just can't get cancer or have a car accident or anything just now, there is just too much to do. Too much to write. Too many heroes to worship *g*
The fifth (I think) season of WaT started last night but they cheated us. They said it was a two-hour season pilot but it was just two eps back to back. Nice though. Martin speaking Spanish *g*

Via con Dios...

Thank you. I ran out of paint - just needed enough to cover one more metre... so now I'll write for a few minutes *g*

Whatever you do, don't dump it. You might want to use parts of it or see how closely a new version parallels it. Did you have any more thoughts on bringing the Safe characters in?
Lost,and Desperate Housewives did the same two eps pilot thing - not at all sure why!
I have a post-it note on my laptop that says VIV-MON. I shall send an e-card, like I did to Christy and you.

I won't dump it totally, just mull over it, I guess. Warm it up a bit so it gets to me better *g*

I am still sorely tempted to bring the Safe characters in. I guess there is no reason why I have to follow the norms of any other writer. And I noticed that Carl Hiassen brings in the same weird guys into most of his crazy novels at some stage!

I am sure Viv will love to hear from you on Monday *g*

A lot of writers have produced series that are only partly linked - this could be the second in your sequence of novels that Viv wants!

I let the first chapters of The Scroll lie for ages and then rewrote them (changed from first to third person for all sorts of reasons) and that kick-started the rest of the story.

Hee,if Viv reads this there is no suprise !

Hope you will continue with the story,never dump anything.Even if you make a new start you have 100 pages of "stuff" you can re use somewhere.

Viv always seems to know what I'm doing anyway *g*

Yeah, thanks, you're right, I'll probably continue, it's just hard after a break. Nick has been pretty quiet since last November! He just needs to get under my skin again...

Of course I'm reading, I'm always popping in and out!*g* But I'm looking forward to Monday and all that it will bring whether I know what people are plotting or not!!!

Just keep writing and enjoy yourself whatever you write, don't abandon Breathing Space - I want to meet Nick, you can't disappear him!

Have you looked at moth2fic's page yet? It's here:
I'm there right now, busy reading....really enjoying it!

And she is right I'm looking forward to having a whole website full of your writing, with a page for each of your many novels....*g* and lots of supporting material too!!

The time does just fly away. I'm sitting here in front of my computer thinking about the things I have to do today, and the time just fills itself up. Before I know it, it's going to be time to go to work!

And you had better live for a long time!

-And you had better live for a long time!
Ooh, okay! I'll do my best!
