Day 17 I think....I'm at nearly 40,000 words anyway so that's all that counts!
And I'm simultaneously editing Hospital Corners and learning 18 songs for the Christmas Cabaret. I did a show last year with that many songs and we had 5 months of rehearsals. I think we'll have about half that time....
What's happening with the NaNo story - Anna is about to dump Quentin, realising he's just a clone of Charlie the ex-hubby. She's finding it quite hard to not be distracted at work by her boss, Nigel, and his rather tasty bum. They've just spent a morning performing a Marsupialization on a Pilonidal Cyst on Flo the parrot's bum. Now it's going to be a spot of equine therapy before Anna heads to Aberdeen to meet Quentin and give him the bad news.
In Hospital Corners - I'm seriously cutting the magazine article written about Esme's famous son, John Jones. I realised that it's a whole pile of his backstory that has absolutely no place in Esme's book. Otherwise, I've fleshed out a chapter between Julie and Alex and I'm much happier with how Julie's coming across, and her initial views of Alex, strengthening one of the books themes which is "don't judge people on first impressions".
Now, I'm off to watch Children in Need on the TV with a glass of wine and some lovely PartyLite Candles.
