Writer night.

I have the novel back from the editor. Not bad, nowhere near as much red ink as I expected. I can get this dealt with and sent back again tonight, I think.

So, for tonight's entertainment, I must refer you to the sidebar. I'm off to don a wide-brimmed hat and cape and do writerly things for the night.

Damn, and there's not a drop of Pernod in the house! Whisky will have to do. It worked for Dylan Thomas.

Well, up to a point...

Enjoy yourself, LI, and I'm happy you didn't see too much red. Don't see alot in your eyeballs tomorrow, either! Cheers.

Well, at least you have got past square one - rejection. Good luck!

Wow! That's pretty good going for a first novel, isn't it?

Good luck leggy!

It isn't about getting drunk all the time is it?

Woohoo! Well done, Leg-Iron!

I can't wait to read it!

Okay, it's done and sent back. I don't expect to hear about it for a little while - I only had to check one book, the editor will have a few on the go at the same time.

The minimal changes are probably due to my inbuilt pedantry. Can't help it, the ghost of my English teacher will slap me if it's not up to scratch!

It's been my experience that a writerly evening always involved a great deal of red wine. But then, my first editor was old school.
