A couple of days ago while peeling potatoes, I managed to slice off the top of my finger. Like, ouch. That will teach me to day dream about my current hero when wielding a sharp implement! Last night, after dinner, I was munching on a mini-Mars bar when I bit into something crunchy. Since as far as I know Mars bars don't have crunchy bits I sent my tongue to investigate and discovered half my tooth had fallen off and was now in a million tiny fragments. Like, urgh!
I thought I'd need an emergency dash to the dentist but thankfully it doesn't hurt so fingers crossed it hangs on until the New Year. Dentist fees are ridiculous! And it's Christmas in less than six weeks! I'd much rather an e-reader than a dental cap!!
However, there is some good news as earlier in the week my husband hunted down a tiny rubber band for our coffee maker so HOORAY! My addiction is now being fed on a far too regular basis.
As for the writing, that's crawling along at a snail's pace but I've reached the conclusion that is all part of my process. I'm lucky to squeeze out 1k a day for the first third of a book, then it tends to creep up to 2k a day and by the time I hit the home stretch I'm up to 3k a day. At least that's what happened with the last two books and I'm comforting myself it's gonna happen with this one too!
And OMG. What do you think of Harlequin's latest venture, Horizons? Vanity publishing? Really?
