Writing things down crystallises our thoughts and makes them clear for others to understand. In so doing, we make our own ideas clearer to ourselves - the we can begin to spot the limitations and implications.

My writing time was limited today due to unforeseen circumstances  but I am heading into the homeward stretch now and starting to tie all the loose ends together  - this is the fun part where I can start playing with different scenarios to see what will be most satisfactory ending for each character’s story.  Only 12 more days to go – hopefully I will be finished in 5 if the writing gods are with me.


  1. Oh, goodie, the comments box is back and I am able to say how impressed I am with your writing stamina. I love the Flannery O'Conner quote, that's pretty much why I write my poetry!

    1. I'll have to finish the novel soon - I'm running out of writing quotes - ha!

  2. Well done, you're doing well. I've enjoyed reading these daily posts. Flighty xx

    1. Well done to you to your daily word count has been amazing.
