mixed day - cold wind, cloudy then sunny - temps 10
Wayne came and cut the grass. Tony came to cut down trees broken by the heavy snow. Luc came to fix the satellite television. All by 9:30 - so the quiet day wasn't quite as quiet as all that. But we were thrilled to have everyone working...outside. While we ferreted away inside.
Still ferreting. Not quite finished the first draft yet. I'm at the revelation stage - always quiet difficult. All an issue of the progression...the reveal. How best to do it? What is most natural? Clearest? How best to knit together all the elements and still keep it simple, but dramatic. so it doesn't read like a list of suspects and motives. Or a compete re-cap of what we've just read.
Taking a break right now from writing...watching BBC World - the British elections. Fascinating. Watched it last night too - but got bored. Taking so long to get results. Fun to see that when a riding is called all the candidates are on the stage together with a big coloured ribbon attached to their shoulders. The winner of announced, and the others needed to stand there and applaud. Actually, quiet moving to see such civility - or at least the appearance of it.
Need to relax for a few minutes then head back. Am determined to finish today, even if I have to write to midnight! Can always tidy it up in the edit.
Light a candle.
