It is still cold and rainy here and I find it hard to get out of bed in the mornings. Why get up when your bed is so warm? After all, my dog makes a great cuddle toy.

Even though it is so cold, I got a lot of writing done on my second book today. My characters were very cooperative and even took me in a few new directions that I did not expect. Having said that, writing the second draft is always the hardest thing for me, because I have to make sense of the first draft, which I have written ages ago.

Anyway, the writing is going good and I am enjoying every moment.


  1. I love second drafts, it's when I can truly see the shape and (hopefully, the genius) take place! (PS... genius is a stretch for me, but one day...)

    Enjoy your cosy bed!

  2. Annalisa - I can see you being a genius already. Don't sell yourself short. You got the talent.

  3. I live in Seattle, WA where the weather is cold, rainy, and depressing 10 months out of the year. It's no wonder I write a lot!

  4. Hey Murees, we're having lovely mild to warm weather, here along the coast in Durbs!
    It's great to hear that your writing is moving along nicely!

  5. Annalisa - I really mean it and you are welcome.

    Nancy - I find that to be the best weather to write in. I do better with depressing weather.

    Michelle - Thank you. It is freezing down here in Cape Town! I usually love winter, but I am seriously suffering this year.
