Editing "Wildblood"

A day of gentle editing - am still enjoying Darren's novel, "Wildblood", but have to take it slowly in order to put comments in. It's intense stuff, a la DH Lawrence, but that's part of its attraction. The battle scenes have eased off now and we're getting more of the heroine's background and developing relationship with the monk, which is nice.

Nap this afternoon, and a visit to Gladys. She's drooping in the heat - aren't we all? - but bravely got rid of a wasp which was beginning to unsettle me. Talking of the wretched beasts (how I hate wasps), a nest is developing at the edge of our flat roof, so I hope I can persuade Lord H to tackle it over the weekend. Will have to promise him chocolate and beer as a reward - at least!

Have registered for the Rejesus ( site, and am taking their six week prayer/slow down programme - not too onerous, thank the Lord, but it makes me (a) slow down a little and (b) think. Which must be positive.

A slow evening planned, with probably more editing.

Even though I'm not of a particular religious faith I also signed up for that 8 week course. We shall have to wait and see the results. Lol!
