After a busy week of preparations for my daughter's prom; a house full of her friends coming to stay the night afterwards(we're talking much shoe envy from me!); my son's lovely girlfriend coming to stay; son and girlfriend getting their 2nd year exam results from university (both did fine); and finally reaching the last 10k or so words of my 120k-word novel (hence the pic of Grumpy on his chair in The Plotting Shed), I know I'm in for a busy weekend of writing (and partying on Saturday) before I can take a deep breath and relax for a couple of days. But I've loved every minute of it all.
I do wish I was able to go to Helen Hunt's (very successful short story writer) workshop on Saturday July 30 from 10.30am to 4pm at a brilliant cost of £30, including lunch/refreshments and the critique of one story.
If you enjoyed Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, then you'll probably enjoy The Little Women Letters by Gabrielle Donnelly, reviewed (by moi) over at Novelicious today.
It's been wonderful having my son back in Jersey for the past few weeks and even though he's working full-time, I'm enjoying having him back in the house when he's there. He's on his way home now and my daughter, who has just finished her GCSEs is down at St Brelades Beach with her friends. I keep trying to persuade her that now is the time to look for a summer job, but 'manana' seems to be the order of the day where that particular topic is concerned.
Have a fabulous weekend and here's hoping the sun keeps on shining.x
