Today my contributor's copies of the The Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica: Volume 6 all shiny and new. With a lovely shiny cheque. There were many issues with it arriving mainly due to Australia Post existing to make my life a misery. I am happy today. Very happy.
I am making progress with my novel but the finish line is like a mirage. I see it in front of me and keep running towards it and it moves further and further away. Damn you finish line. But I'm colouring more and more of my colour coded chart pink and pink is the colour of finished chapters.
The next time I write a novel, I will not use the word 'was' in the first draft. That will make editing so much easy. Damn you, 'was', you're an evil word.
