... I can feel them.
Firstly, my laptop's finally come home and it's in tip-top condition! So now when I'm unable to sit at the main comp for long, I no longer have an excuse not to write (I still have numbness in my hands which makes it difficult to put pen to paper). I thank God I can still type.
My story has been progressing, but be warned the wordcounter may not move for a while. I've reached a stage where I need to go back and rewrite chapters three and four before I can continue with the plot. I'm hoping the changes I'm ready to make will make the chapters longer in a natural way. I confess I'm even feeling a little excited because as it stands now I'm on Chapter Seven. I originally thought I'd need at least 16 chapters but I'm now hoping once I've implemented the rewrites I'll discover I'm closer to the end than I thought. I'm busy now trying not to count my chickens...
And the icing on the cake was to discover that Trish has posted a link to me on her blog :-0!!!
You know something else I'm learning - published writers really do love hearing from their readers. It's something I've only started doing recently, but in light of the comments Trish has made on her blog I'm realising it means a lot to learn they have achieved what they set out to do - give enjoyment to readers.
