I am trying to knock a novel into shape ready to present to my agent - she instigated the premise and I am prepared for her to say, 'That isn't quite what I was hoping for', well OK I'm not, but that could explain why I'm stalling and keep re-reading the ms.
I have a book release next year and my editor will want to begin edits soon - very soon - I also have three book reviews due, three blog posts scheduled for the coming weeks as well as a few outstanding critiques and - oh yes - a husband whose feeling neglected - not to mention the house! 'How can you forget where you put the hoover?'
And another thing, it's my birthday on Saturday and the family have organised a small party to take me to this lovely restaurant - and I am too depressed about the impending number to be enthusiastic! Can't I just make one up? Or even better start subtracting numbers instead of adding them?
