I'M NEARLY FINISHED!
I haven't blogged for awhile because I have been slogging away at my manuscript.
Last weekend I printed off the first 300 pages - half way. My writing buddy is going through it with a fine tooth comb and a second copy is doing the rounds of a few readers. So while I nervously wait for their comments, suggestions, etc I'm working on the last half.
I have about 100 pages left to tweak and polish and they are proving the hardest.
In the meantime school holidays are looming, so my writing will have to take a back seat. Also our family are knee deep in fundraising for our oldest son, who is off to Europe next year. I avoided cheese roll making on Saturday with a writing workshop, but we are doing it all over again in August. Then there's the selling of raffles (sitting outside supermarkets and the Warehouse), A few sausage sizzles, chocolate selling and finishing the quilt for a Christmas raffle. And the list goes on. Of course I'm a permanent taxi driver for my 3 kids, I have to feed them and I think I might be responsible for keeping the house clean too.
When the final pages are printed, you'll hear about it. I might just throw a party.
