      I can’t step away from the challenges! But I took a step forward… rereading what I’ve written in preparation for more writing!

        I never got started on the A to Z challenge… I know I would give it my all, and then I’d have no time for other pursuits.. namely the WIP which has expanded by a few words already this morning/afternoon!

        Next year then…I challenge you lol. Have to say I was not over eager. I have loads of spotlights to do. But then I realised my own WIP is languishing. It needs finishing. I then came up with the Amanuensis as a thing to force me to explore everything. For me this is probably better than just diving back into it.

        Ooh, a few words is better than no words 😂

        I started re-reading, and got a real confidence… I really enjoyed reading it ( I don’t know if I should say that about my own writing!) and thought I just have to finish it! I just read the last bit to my Lil Princess (She has heard a lot of it, though I censored some) and she said “mummy, even though I have heard it, I kinda want to get a copy of it all for myself!” I feel there is a kind of approval there!

        Yes, you should or those internal demons start questioning things way too much! Kids have a way of being really honest too. If they think it’s pants their faces can’t help but show it lol

        Well… I was reading a rough copy of the talk I’m giving at the bash out yesterday… she decided to piggyback along and join the ride. But as it went totally over her head… she was like “how long?” “Is it finished yet?” And I felt decidedly put out Lol!
