Writing went slowly today, only got 3 pages done (again sewing my chapters together) before it was time for brunch. Could NOT miss this brunch as the restaurant we've hung at for many years is closing.

Then catsat and fell asleep for quite a while. Back home and messed around, email, etc.

About an hour ago I looked at my chapters and realized I'd screwed up, written two different things for the same time period, so now I have to untangle it. I really don't do this often, but it slowed me down. Did two pages that may or may not stand, and finished my wordcount.

Just a rather bleh day, though I think if I hadn't had the am interruption it might have been a good day.

However, wordcount WAS made, which is, of course, the bottom line.

Love to all,

Maybe you will like hearing this: I was horribly sick and crampy and miserable on Friday, and after I'd thrown up and then spent an hour trying to be not concious in bed, I was lying there, and it suddenly occurred to me that I wanted to read a "Heart" book. Nothing else. So I realized that your Heart books are apparently my easy comfort-reading. Thanks. :)

Absolutely! I agree with Brooke. There are days when I, standing in the middle of my 'library', have nothing to read and I just reach for either of your series. I pretty much start at the beginning and read through to the end. I don't do that with many other series and I have done it more than once with yours.

I have two other favorite books that I will read in such times: The Notorious Rake by Mary Balough and The Duchess of Asherwood by Mary A. Garratt.

When you come out with the third series then I will have more things to read in such times of crisis.
