Friday round up

I spent most of the day so far in Addenbrookes hospital, where I’d been drafted to drive my husband home after he’d had his kidney stone zapped with ultrasonic rays. Something which apparently leaves the victim patient literally shaken up. Unfortunately after x-rays it turned out that the stone had moved and was now being protected by his pelvis. Which meant strike that plan and he has to go back on Wednesday for an operation. For a couple of hours we bounced like pinballs from one reception area to another as they did preparatory tests for that, and then we payed six pounds carparking! and came home.

Writing wise I’ve had my nose to the grindstone this week and have added 5,000 words to False Colors, out of a total of 15,000 which Perseus want me to add. So it’s now 90,000 words long, and I’m not envisaging any trouble in adding another 10k. Three thousand of that five went into the final chapter alone! I think I’d got to the stage where I just wanted it to end, dammit! So the last few chapters are distinctly thin, and an extra 5k words here and there are very welcome 🙂

As for the blogging thing. I posted a bit of musing on the subject of The Muse, on the Macaronis blog yesterday. I lay odds that most of my friends list will be able to put a name to my mysterious muse 😉

And today the Britwriters blog are holding their regular Friday Brit-picking clinic. So if you have a story where you need any information about Britain, ancient or modern, feel free to drop by and ask about it.

Oh, and I should also mention that I am taking part in Rainbow Reviews’ scavenger hunt this month. 44 books to win if you manage to track Rainbow Reviews’ logo down on each of the participating authors’ websites. Could be worth an afternoon of browsing 🙂

Despite the fact that I don’t cook or do housework unless I can possibly avoid it:


As a 1930s wife, I am

Take the test!
