Blues Buster


Well with the boys gone I have been blue. The house is empty during the day. Now I won't say that while they were here there weren't times when I thought a little peace and quiet would be good but now the Snowy and I rattle about the place. I know this is normal so I grabbed a book off the tbr pile and got lost. Yesterday I read Stage by Stage by Jan Jones. It took me to a world of theatre which I know nothing about and made me fall in love with a rake of an actor while my heart was so full for the heroine Beth. The sexual tension in the book was superb the whole way through ( don't know about you but sometimes when it happens early the spark just fizzles out afterwards but it didn't here). The humour was always bubbling through the surface so I found I had a smile glued to my face all day. It took the blues away quite nicely - thank you!

Now to take myself in hand and really focus on A Cornish House. I know what I have to do so I will do it. This rewrite will be complete by the time I fly to the UK on the 23rd of May! Now there's a deadline - yikes!

Hi Liz

I know what you mean about missing your boys. I took my dd back to uni yesterday and i still miss her even though she's only 2 hours away. I shan't see you at the summer party then?

Good luck! We're both nearly there with the rewrites (whatever happened to my ambition to write a complete first draft this year??).

Deadlines help; I wouldn't get anything done without them. And I'm sure that focusing on your writing will help you get used to the empty house. There's nothing like losing yourself in an imaginary world to make the real one go away.

Hugs to you Liz; hope you feel back on the up while ensconsed in ACH.

Chrish - you'll be hitting the end long before I will! WTG :-)

Deadlines are good thing Zinnia as you say and I really want to find a routine again where I am lost in my writing!

Thanks JJ. Don't you fly soon?
