Update

I'm feeling kind of pleased with myself tonight, despite the fact that I've been sort of AWOL from posting for a week or so.


Yep, now that I look at it, I haven't posted anything in a week. Which is really unlike me, given my writing record.

Anyway, I'm sure you're asking why I'm so pleased with myself. Well, after years and years of procrastinating, and thanks to a kick in the butt (metaphorically speaking since we're half a world apart, haha) from a very close friend, I have now completed ten chapters (117 pages) of a novel I've been writing since probably about 1996.

I spent about two hours today working on the tenth chapter, revising stuff I'd written years before and adding some new stuff, tightening it up etc and getting it ready for my betas to read over.

I hope to have a new chapter of the Illuminati story done soon. I'm about halfway through writing that.

The only reason I've been absent this week is due to a five-day migraine. Yes, I know I complain about them a lot, but since I'm on my own I have no one else to complain to. No Clark or Bruce's magic fingers to take the pain away either :( *sigh* Such is life.

Thanks hon, this novel really means a lot to me and it would be so awesome to see it published.

The trouble with my migraines is they do come back again, unfortunately, but I try not to let them stop me with my writing.

Fantastic news! I'm so impressed you managed so much, even with a migraine. Even is it was waning, those buggers can wipe you out. I'm happy for you, and am looking forward to hearing more about it and you progress.

Aww, thanks for the encouragement. Yeah, you're right, migraines can be buggers to get rid of, and I have been feeling pretty wiped out for the last week. I was so happy to be able to sit down and write on the weekend for the first time in a week.

Thank you hon, it means a lot to know that I have friends here who are so encouraging. I wish you the best of luck for the bar exam next month. I'll be thinking of you when you have to sit it.
