Days 133-136 (September 21-24)
Afternoon: Scrolled through a number of chapters with small items highlighted and was able to fix them quickly. Two chapters still have significant work to be done. Also need to check original research to make sure that any earlier changes haven’t raised anomalies; e.g. moving dates that may not match seasonal issues in Africa with regard to rainy season, hunger gap and disease outbreaks. The library was quiet even though many children were there because of school holidays. Left sooner than intended and made it home ahead of the worst of a storm. The season has started.
This morning was special. Our Writers Group had a small function to celebrate the e-publishing of our anthology Ten Minute Tales and to meet our UK writer who is in Australia on a brief holiday with his wife to visit relatives. It was a lovely get-together and Graham is just how I imagined he would be from reading his writing and enjoying his imaginative approach to story topics. I’ve included a picture of our cake which represents the cover of the anthology (a co-operative family event I gather). It picks up the wonderful blue in the real cover picture. Find the anthology by Googling Ten Minute Tales anthology.
The end of last week was slow for editing – mainly catch-up at home after being away. The effects of the break haven’t worn off. Still on coastal time I think.
