More excitement! Is that possible? After my last piece of news about the acceptance of my novel, Divorcees.biz for publication, I would have thought that was enough excitement it for the next year. But then I was forgetting the excitement of discussing a cover for the book and the anticipation of waiting for the edits to come through.
I have seen a sketch of the cover and I am really very pleased with it. So now I am looking forward to seeing the completed drawings. As for the edits... well they are something else. Will I recognize my story when the editors have checked it over and made all the necessary corrections? Will it still sound as frothy and as quirky as it once did? Will Sadie still be the down-to-earth, matter-of-fact, scatty woman she was when I first created her? Will Connie....? Stop!!
I have got to stop thinking like this. I have got to get a grip. Of course everything will be as it was. Except my errors will have been corrected and the whole thing will flow much better.
Changing the subject completely before my nails are chewed down to the quick, my friend and I took another trip to Newcastle on Wednesday. It seems to have become a bit of a habit. What am I talking about? Bit of a habit, it has definitely become very much a habit - full stop. But what a wonderful habit. Just to wander around the shops and hear the familiar Geordie accent is beyond words. If you haven't been to Newcastle-on-Tyne, then you have really got to try it sometime. And once you are there, you must try the M&S Deli cafe - bar on the ground floor of the food hall. It is wonderful. The seating is set out in a sort of horse shoe shaped arrangement near the back entrance so you can't miss it. The staff are brilliant, even though they are often rushed off their feet, they always make time to chat to the customers as they dash around.
Of course I had to treat myself to something. Having travelled the seventy miles down to Newcastle, how could I not treat myself to something? Anyway on this visit it was a new skirt, which I am rather pleased with. Perhaps next time I will get a top to go with it. :-)
Well I think I have rambled on enough for the moment. Once I have more news about the cover and the edits, I will be back.... So watch this space!!
Have a great day,
