Today was another long day. I spent some time in Brookfield and had to ride in a vehicle without air conditioning. Normally, this wouldn’t have been such a problem, but with my cold, I felt as if I were in a sauna. Amazing what a small fever will do. I came home and laid down for awhile since the heat had zapped my energy.

But, finally, late this evening I was able to finish Chapter 17. Not some of my best writing, but editing will take care of that. Paraphrasing the great Nora Roberts, “you have to get the words down, even if they’re bad at first.” I know that’s not the quote, but it’s the gist of it. And, I did get 1314 words written. I’ll begin tomorrow morning with a quick edit of them and move onto Chapter 18. Hope the weather is better tomorrow! And, I would appreciate my muse having coffee with me in the morning.
