Writing and other stuff

I love the word "stuff" (when referring to things that is.)
After a chat with a dear lady with a lot of experience (20 books I would think but I haven't counted them) the butchering of BTL is on hold and I am back with the original.She gave me some sound advice and I'm taking it. Goerge is very happy to be back - for now at least.
The day job has been keeping me busy but I have managed to fit in some writing.
CT is back out of the drawer so to speak after it's sabbatical in the drawer while I had the knife to BTL. That's good because it's a project that I'm eager to get on with. At the moment no new words have been added as I'm re-reading what I already had and getting a feel for it again.
I have also been working on my short story for the writing group that I am in. It's all there apart from the end. I how I want it to end and what I want to say, I just haven't found the right words to say them with yet. I'll give that some thought today and hopefully come up with the nuggets of wisdom before tomorrow evening.
Other than that there's not been much. Oh I did receive an electronic copy of one of the travel articles that I wrote. That looks good but I'm sure it will look better on the glossy page. I need to add a "couple of lines" to the end and get that back to them by tomorrow at the latest. As I saw the email after 7pm last night and I had to email them back asking how many words they want added to the fact that I am at work today and I think we all know what I'll be doing tonight.
Speaking of work, I should really get a wriggle on. It's 7.10am and I need to leave in 20 minutes so that I can make a detour to the bank (for some cash) the supermarket (for some bread) and still hopefully have time for a cuppa before the day has to start properly.

Hope you get that end done by Thursday, Colette - have you thought of asking the dog? - hee hee! :-)

Exciting having a travel article in a glossy mag!

It's looking like a negative on the ending Amanda and yes I am VERY excited about the travel article.

Congratulations on the article - great stuff (you're right, that's a great word).
