Bliss


The air this morning is crisp. The gritty rain of yesterday has passed (for the moment) and the sun is unhindered by clouds.


Yesterday morning was bliss too despite breezes yellow in colour and refinishing the texture of my face. Friend and writer Janet Gover is in Dubai for her other life - IT guru I think, and she had the morning free. Well I cannot say what joy I experienced from three hours of talking of nothing but writing to someone who KNOWS/UNDERSTANDS. They know you are not really mad because you several lives at once. They know the thrill when boom a new twist appears out of nowhere yet you had actually foreshadowed it without realizing it. They know the despair of rejection and understand that quiet joy that it wasn't a form one. You have walked the same yet different road.


I can look forward to another marathon session on Wednesday - heaven. Now I must get to work. Yes, I clarified some of the 'crapness' of August Rock yesterday and now after a weekend away.........and itching to dive in.

I was talking about writing yesterday to a good friend of mine and I knew she just didn't get what I was on about!

Good to read that you've been recharged. I really admire the way you've hung on in with AR. I am trying to finish yet another rewrite of FTT!

It was great to get together Liz. Thanks for the hospitality. I somehow managed to get a lot of writing done while I was there, which is unusual. I normally don't write when I'm on this sort of job. I'll give you and our long chats over coffee the credit for that.
