I am not a very good web-siter. Almost every day I tell myself "tomorrow I'll update the site".
So on this hot late summer day I have got a round tuit.
Demonstrating our exciting lifestyle two things have dominated. The sunflower that
shot up and up from nowhere. Thank you sparrow or blackbird or starling or even bellbird whoever deposited the seed, and where did it come from? It grew and grew until it almost topped the apple tree. The flower provided a home for bees - and then it faded.
Never mind I will save the seed and we will have a garden full of yellow flowers next year.
The other talking point was the monster egg laid by the smaller of our two chooks. It must have taken a great deal concentration and effort to produce
- after which she and her mate have gone broody. No eggs for a week so far, but they still have the power to entertain.
Not being a new year resolution maker and therefore cannot break them for 2016 I did decide to try to write something everyday towards
my crime story which is developing nicely.
So far this year I average 360 words a day BUT if I ignore weekends when I rarely write and use part of the time working plot problems out in my head the average goes up to over 500 words, making it almost
20,000 this year.
Where does the time go to? I know I read a lot, and have just found parts one and three of a John Masters trilogy written in the 80s but am holding the thousand or so words for the Winter.
The other time consumer is code cracker
- Jan at last has persuaded me and bought me my own book - it is time consuming, irritating and then intensely satisfying to complete.
I look forward to receiving any comments criticisms, offers from publishers, or litereary agents, or applications
to fill the permanent vacancy for a marketing manager.
