A lazy start to the day, and then lunch in Farnham with Pam, a writing friend from Guildford Writers (http://www.guildfordwriters.net). She's snowed under at the moment, so hasn't had time to come to our group as often, but has plenty of ideas for future work. Plenty more than I do, anyhow.
During the afternoon, I joined another writing website - http://www.youwriteon.com - and printed off the start of another member's chapters for comment. Also posted the start of "Maloney's Law" on the forum pages, which brought some very much appreciated positive comments. It looks like an interesting site to be on, with good plans for the future, so I'll see how it goes.
Lord H sorted out my front cover for "Pink Champagne and Apple Juice" and I emailed it to Irene of Goldenford (http://www.goldenford.co.uk) for use in emails to bookshops. Also received back the editing comments on Chapter Four of "Thorn in the Flesh" from the Jacquie Bennett site (http://www.jbwb.co.uk). Shall get on with those as soon as I can. It will be good to get it finished and off to my agent (http://www.sff.net/people/john-jarrold/about.html).
Also did some more work with the "Reinventing my Life" book - hard but helpful, and it's the path I want to be on right now. I think, at the risk of sounding pretentious, it'll help me to be more real. This, for me, is one of the most important things at the moment.
And, finally, I asked to come off the church prayer rota list. Another weight of expectation banished. Hurrah.
