Conf 204: The Weekend

Wordcount: 43,299


"Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up." Thomas Alva Edison

More work work coming in this weekend, here's hoping it won't take up too much time.

Reached daily wordcount target today and completed nasty dentist treatment. Dentist wasn't nasty at all but the bill was. Discovered that the scene I was writing had a hidden depth double meaning. When they happen on their own like that, a bonus and a clue that you might actually be getting somewhere.

Fab evening at Debbie's yesterday. I now have a new wardrobe. Much-needed jeans & lots of trousers, dresses, skirts & tops. Also discovered Virgin Radio and introduced D to The Streets, though I know she'll know them when she hears them.

Bye bye, thanks for visiting, come again soon.

Love that hidden double depth thing when it just sneaks up on you ... makes you feel like you're in tune with - er - something or other.
Sometimes it feels a bit freaky too - like the story's being fed to you and you're not actually in control after all!
You'll either know what I mean or assume I'm on medication ...

Yes. Story being fed to one is a very good state to be in. Could be illusional on my part at the moment. Reading it at workshop tonight so will see how it goes.
