I think I'm officially a writer.

Woke up at 5am. Alarm due to go 5.45am (I'm cat-sitting about 45 mins from home). I need to leave house by 7am, so I'm going pack everything up at 6am). I have to be home by 8am to wait for a new phone being delivered (very excited).

After checking my emails/blogs, its 5.33am. So I stumble down for a coffee (caffeine is my friend at times like this), come back and settle down to some editing.

I'm this addicted to editing . In my semi-conscious state I wanted to scream 'Nooooo' at the awful telling first paragraph in chapter 10. So I axed it. And started it off with paragraph Two. I haven't lost anything :)

Now that I'm awake, caffeine fuelled, I need to go pack and leave. Eager to get back to revisions...after a stack of book reviews. And learning how use the new phone. Which has no buttons. I definitely need to avoid dropping this one on the floor. Might make a thick, padded case for it (fabric + wadding).

I'm at my favourite turning point in Termion (well, I love it all, but these next parts were a delight to write).

More updates later!

I wish I was that motivated with my dissertation.
Keep on enjoying the writting and I still want to know when you first work is published - definately want to read it.

Much squealing!

Frances! How are you? Hello! *waves frantically*

:) Nice to see you here. Forgotten I'd sent you the links.

Yeah, bit tired after work (late home) so after an hour of reading (yay!) and a book review, I'll be editing more of chapter 10 tonight. Might even get to finish it.
