So, this is what I've been up to.
rachaellucaswriter - yesterday
Sometimes it takes a bit of distance to realise something isn't working. I've come back to the desk and realised that the 35,000 words I've written aren't going to make it. So: a new notepad, lots of coffee, and time to think all over again.

I'm just reading through the proof copy of The State of Grace and they've changed okay to OK. It doesn't look right to me - but I thought I'd check and see what you all think. So: okay or OK?

Back to work. Well, I have a coffee and a notebook, at least. Next stop turning off the internet. Ahem. (Finally feeling human again, after the hideous cold. Thanks for the cheering up messages!)
It's ages until spring, but this winter I feel okay with that for some reason. I didn't feel the usual gloom at taking down the decorations, and I feel really positive about this year. It's unexpected and very lovely to feel so positive in January. Here's to a new week.
