Ahhhh January's over at last, thank Gawd, and it's Friday too. Hooray! I feel like I just hang on for the weekend at the moment, I'm finding it tough going with my other half being in London 3 days of the week. Not much fun. Still... the big news is, he's handed in his notice at work, so it won't be for that much longer. Another hooray!
So...February. I'm aiming to get to 60,000 words on the novel this month. I will do it, I will do it. If I keep telling myself this, I will do it. I'm also waiting to hear from two publishers about some proposals, so I'm hoping there will be some closure there, one way or another... Please cross your fingers, blogworld, I can't bear a sad ending.
Luckily there are loads of great books around at the moment to distract me from my waiting pain - Milly Johnson's new one, The Birds and The Bees, Slummy Mummy and Mister Pip. Oh, and because I'm rather jammy, I've got a proof of the new Tim Winton book, Breath which I can't wait to read - oooh, I love his stuff. Cloudstreet is up there as one of the best books I've ever read. And of course, if you're out in the bookshops, I do believe that today is the paperback publication date of In Search of Adam - if you haven't read it yet, where have you been? It's fantastic. And the lovely Caroline will be signing copies in Chester tomorrow!
Have a good weekend!
