Well, I told you I was busy! Two and a half weeks since my last blog post! My major achievement this week has been still having an Easter egg and a half left over (if I was writing this an hour ago, it would half been an Easter egg and three-quarters 😉)
The edits I mentioned last time are still on-going. I managed to complete one of the two perspectives in the novel – the messiest one. The next section occurs in quite a neat chronological order, so I’m hoping it will be a lot more simple.
For the past couple of weeks, I’ve also been back to teaching some exercise classes. We’re not allowed indoor workout classes until the middle of May, so we’ve been in the gym car park. Let me just say, a car park at 5pm on the south Cornish almost-coast with a biting northerly wind is quite an interesting place to teach. And yet everyone stayed, most had a smile on their faces by the end (or possibly it was frozen there) and they turned up again on Friday morning.
We did not look this serene! But we had fun… yeah, until the fire at the local recycling centre began and the fumes were pushed across by that northerly wind!
Tomorrow I return to work properly, and I can’t wait to see all the regular clients returning, or for my first workout in the gym in over three months. I just want to lift heavy weights again!
In other news, I received the galley proofs of Small Forgotten Moments. This is the stage where the text is scrutinised for those tiny errors which have been missed in all the previous reads. And believe me, those typos hide themselves really well! And I’ve got a list of tasks to complete to make the launch in August go smoothly. It’s the downhill stretch and I’m so excited!
