Making Words

I’m back again. I’ve had my head down, working on my manuscript and there hasn’t been time for much else. Now that the ms has stopped sulking good progress has been possible and I’ve made many words. The end is in sight.

There was no miraculous change, and the words haven't come easily. But I knew it was time to push on and I made a little pact with myself that I wasn't allowed to stop just because it was hard. Writing isn't always fun or easy but I think that's fair; the times when it's a bit of a grind balance those where it's more fun than a bunch of kittens and a ball of yarn.

So the words have been piling up and we should be back to our normal programming from now on. Well, at least what passes for normal around here.

AJ just love the way you said your MS has stopped sulking - LOL! Yes they become their own entities don't they. Glad the end is in sight - good luck with it.

Hi Eleni,

Yes, it had the severe sulks for a while. Ignoring the discomfort seemed the best policy, and it worked!
