The writing is flowing pretty well at the moment but I find I am startled at the what is coming out. I know this sounds peculular but it's true. This book has been mulling in my head for over a year so my mind has had plenty of time to work with the basic seed and feed it well. However I thought I knew where it had sprouted. The last 7000 words just goes to show how wrong I can be. Despite my key ideas and basic plot this story has twisted in some very new directions for me - scarey but good - well, at least, at this point!

I continue to try and limit myself on Black Box Widgeting.......write a couple hundred words then two goes......there are some new interesting choices coming up now not to mention some fabulous blogs. If you have stopped by because of the BBW- what were the choices that brought you here?

Finally I can confirm that I will make to the launch of Caroline Smailes Black Boxes. I am so excited that things have finally fallen together and that wonderful sil was able to accomodate us in London!


Caroline said...

So so so looking forward to meeting you! :)

I am really rather excited (and forgetting all about the reading, Q&A and general stress) (ahhhhhhh!)


Cathy said...

I'm hoping to get to Caroline's launch too, Liz, so it will be lovely to meet you.

Trixie said...

Well I came via your comment from the black box, lol. I've had to step WELL clear of it, because the first time I used it, I stayed on it for 6 hours!

Biddy said...

Hey you! Thanks for the invite to the launch. Can I let you know early next week? I think I am supposed to be going corset shopping... long story! Will you be online when you are in London?

Zinnia Cyclamen said...

That black box thing... is there a twelve-step programme?

Steve Malley said...

7000 already?! Right on!!

(Hm, wait, do the young people still say 'right on' nowadays? Perhaps I'd better say)


(Yes, that did it...)

Caroline- you'll be fine. Adter all yu're a star :-)

Can't wait to meet you Cathy!

Trxie - thanks for visiting. Yes, I do wonder the total hours lost to Black Boxing since the widget arrived in our lives???

Hi, Biddy, I won'y be on line in London but I don'y fly until Thursday morning. I'll send you an email with my uk cell phone. Corset shopping??? Research I'm thinking?

Zinnia maybe we should start one!

Oh,Steve, you're giving you age away :-)

Debs said...

Well done with the book. I'm spending far too much time on the black box widget, loving it.

I wish I was going to be able to make caroline's launch, but can't go away again so soon.

liz fenwick said...

Debs - maybe the next launch!
