And my sneaky Inner Editor has somehow got back into my head. Would someone care to take it on for another 11 days? Liz? Lynne? Elizabeth? Or any other authors out there? I think maybe Chris Baty's kennels only open in November.
I also had the feeling that reading Colette (for book group) wasn't such a good idea. I think she is such a brilliant writer. Her words are poetry; no one uses such unusual yet perfectly apt adjectives. Few people craft a tale like she does. I'm getting really sidetracked and even comparing different translations..
I'm also getting sidetracked by the wish to begin editing my own effort and find myself jumping about from one bit to another. (Someone once told me I had a grasshopper brain. They were right, I fear.)
50,000 words is an arbitrary figure I know, and this 'boot camp' way is of course not the only way to write a novel....but then again, having got this far..
