While the dust settles

There were quite a lot of things I had planned to do today, but for some reason we (my family and I) decided it was time to attack the dust and dirt in our living-room and dining-room.

We did, and now priority two (which I thought would have been priority one) is editing The Cosy Knave. Twenty-five pages or so to go. I will probably feel I have to go through it at least once more before it is good enough to send off to an agent or publisher, but still that day is getting nearer.

And while you are waiting for a proper (criminal) blog post from me, you might enjoy a few of my blue bottles, now reasonably dust-free.

11:15 - second version finished.

I'm loving the bottles. Blue is my favorite color and I'd love to have these in my house :-)

Congrats on your progress with writing, sounds like you're almost there.

Dorte - Oh, they are lovely bottles! I think blue glass is beautiful. And I'm so happy for you that you've that close to being done with your editing. You are an inspiration.

They are spectacularly dust-free, I love them. I hope the editing is smooth and productive!

I agree...they are quite lovely. I wish things were dust free at my house, but alas, that's a near impossible feat. Things are so dry right now and the dogs bring in loads of dust/dirt from the outside.

I collect blue and green glass, my favourite colours. I love yours!
Glad you're getting nearer to sending your work off to the publisher. Have a good Sunday!

Thank you for your encouragement. I just finished second draft. Not perfect yet, but I feel certain I have made some progress today.

how exciting that you are nearly finished editing The Cozy Knave. What is the next step?

I love your bottles, I bet they look lovely with the light shining through them.

I collected blue bottle too for a long time but with our new windows, I lost all my windowsills. What a pity. Wish I could send you mine.

Tracy: next step: try not to lose my bottle and send it off to an agent or a publisher. It will probably take ages, but there is no other way to get there than by taking the first step.

Patti: I´d love to have them, but my daughter would say I had blue glass aplenty already ;D
