Running very fast here in order to stand still. Have entire family descending for the fete de Noel and MIL already settled in residence. In the midst of preparations I was suddenly struck by an idea for a novel. This was most inconvenient as I am rather busy, it kept me up last night, with an annoying list of chapter headings, and this morning when I should be doing domestic slavery I am here at the computer having safely tied MIL to the kitchen table with a bottle of silver polish and a lifetimes supply of cutlery to keep her out of mischief. I know I should be glad and relieved as having finished the re write of "The Adventures of UN Peu Loufoque" and "Pootle", my children's story, I feared my Muse may have died of exhaustion! No, it was merely waiting for the worst possible time to come visit! Does anyone else have this trouble?
Anyway I am not sure what list I need to put my name down for for 2009, I promise to be good and write regular and try and comment as much as possible..meanwhile.. Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night... or in my case a night fighting with chapter contents whilst trying to type silently so as not to wake up visitors!!
