Fabulous Friday

Look at my word counter! Just look! Over there, on the right, headed 'Rewrite In Progress'. See? One-third done! Yep, the latest chunk of 10,000 words went off to Debi this morning. I even managed to write 500 words on Wednesday - and, speaking of Wednesday, thank you so much to everyone who responded to my last post. Your kindness really helped me through a very difficult day.

Today is differently difficult, in that I have rather too much to do for the time available. And the time available is shrinking rapidly, because at 4.45 pm I am leaving to catch a train to Birmingham Airport, where I will meet a girlfriend for a night in a hotel before an early check-in to catch the plane to Sardinia!!!!! We're staying in the mediaeval town of Bosa, in an apartment which looks amazing. The weather looks fab too - around 27 degrees in the daytime and 18 at night, perfect!

I've never been to Sardinia before, and neither has my friend. She is escaping from her husband and two children and her demanding job, so she's looking forward to the break. I will of course take my laptop and intend to write as much, or as little, as I feel like writing. I don't expect to have Internet access, so I'll tell you all about it after I get back (next weekend). There may even be photos!

Have a great week, everyone. Byeeeeeee!!!

Enjoy it for me too please. Sardinia was all booked when we had to cancel and eschew foreign travel.
Fortunately we did lots whilst we could.
Well done on the latest 10,000.

Oooh, Sardinia, how lovely. I've always wanted to go there. I hope you have a wonderful time. Congratulations on your words; that's brilliant. When you get back you can come and see my 70,000 words on my first draft!

Vanity prompted me to check out Jumbley Girl's blog when she said she'd written about my creative writing class in Hebden Bridge library. And I thought I'd say thanks for your nice comment (what Arvon course did you do btw?)and then I read your interesting and entertaining blog. And, like others who commented, I found your post about your wedding anniversary very moving... Very best
