Well, I didn't make it - the book is still here.
Been working hard, but got a bit sandbagged. Found another plot hole that needed fixing and now a wall in the back garden is on the move and that too wants fixing. There's a crack in it I can get my fingers in. Money and mess, I'm afraid. It's the lowest tier of three terraces has a lot of soil behind it. The builder reckons we have at least three skips worth. And skips are apparently very expensive these days! Also concrete blocks.
It will all get done, but sadly it might be at the expense of some of the nice things I wanted, like a new bedroom carpet.
Oh well, that's life. I certainly don't want to wake up in the middle of a dark and stormy night to the sound of ominous cracking and rumbling and a very large pile of moving soil.
I'm still working frantically on the book and I do hope that it will be done, as done as it can be at this stage, by next week.
Once it is out of the house I can get rid of the tunnel vision and start blogging about more interesting things.
One good thing - A Villa in Portofino has a best seller flag again today. Blink and you miss it, but cheering when it happens.
If you have any positive writing/editing/finishing the damn thing and getting it out the door vibes around, please feel free to send them my way.
