trundling on...

I’m continuing to write in fits and spurts, but I am slowly getting there. I didn’t write yesterday or today, but I got seven pages done on Thursday, which wasn’t a bad effort. I’m really enjoying the characters in Mercy–and the story is starting to roll along. Although there is one section where I was thinking ‘God, this is boring! Get it moving woman!’, but at least I can fix that up later. Words on paper is the most important thing in a first draft. Once I’ve gotten to the end, and know the characters and the story, I can go back and fix all the horrible bits.  I’m hoping to get some writing done tomorrow, although I have a heap of roses that need to be planted out tomorrow as well (it’s always a dangerous thing when I discover a nursery, let alone one that specializes in award winning roses :) )

One good thing though–I have the majority of my Christmas shopping done. Yay me! I just have to get a few more things for Kasey, something for Pete, and then I’m done. No last minute shopping for me this year. But there is going to be some baking–I said I’d do a gingerbread house for a Kris Kringle, so now I have to do it. I used to make tons of them when I worked as a cook at Essendon, but I haven’t done them since. If it turns out, I’ll post a pic :)
