I’ve never actually seen a pear tree come to think of it…
Did you miss me? Did you notice my absence?
Probably not, but for politeness sake you’ll pretend you did and I appreciate your acting skills, really I do.
Where have I been? To a wedding, among other things. A wedding where I was reminding that yes, even on top of a building, grass and high heels do not mix. I was lucky enough to be wearing a dress that didn’t blow up like Marilyn Monroe’s every time gust of wind came, so for that I was thankful, even if my two inch heels sent me plummeting downwards when I put the slightest bit of weight on them.
One day men shall have to wear them and we’ll see who’s laughing then!
Precisely one week after said gorgeous wedding I found myself at the races and once again grass and high heels – not a good mix. I’ve never had a sudden urge to perch a bunch of feathers on my head and stand in the sun for hours on end but I had a lovely time actually and would even consider doing it again just for the sake of wearing a pair of my favourite shoes (yes my weakness) and a new dress (did someone say shopping?)
Aside from that all housework, work, tax (yes I like to leave it until the last minute and live dangerously) and life have gone by the wayside and I am now desperately trying to catch back up.
That’s also my way of confessing to doing very little writing, by the way.
My competition entry took on a life of its own and switched into external conflict mode, bad manuscript. While in keeping with Desire guidelines I’m sure it would send Harlequin Presents editors reaching for the red pen (and alcohol). That’s the problem with writing for more than one line, occasionally the other sneaks in when you’re tired.
Honestly I don’t think the ms and I are talking at the moment. I’m not impressed at all because I didn’t exactly notice at first so there’s a couple of thousand words about to go bye bye.
I’ve been trying to remember whether Lynn Raye Harris or Lucy Roberts had completed manuscripts or if they concentrated on the first chapter and synopsis only for their entries. Does anyone know?
How’s everyone else competition entry going?
