writing frenzy

I've been working on the new project the first half of the day, and switching over to editing work the latter half. Thus far this work schedule is going really well. I stayed up until 2:30 a.m. this morning I was so caught up in the edits.

It's been rainy and windy here most of the day, and we lost power for about 6 hours. Fortunately, I'm working in longhand this trip, and so the power loss didn't affect my writing time at all.

In between the writing I'm enjoying the company of two of my favorite women colleagues in fiction, who are also here working hard on their novels and stories.

Right now, I feel like I'm in a novel myself - in the mansion full of antiques and history and layers of writing energy from years on end, the wind howling outside, the ghost room just down the hall. It's quite stimulating.

This sounds so delightful and productive. Keep enjoying yourself at the mansion.

Billie, I should be at your side. I know I would love the mansion of which you speak. Does it have dust for rolling? How I envy you.

Sheaffer, you're right - it is a place you'd love. I'll post some photos of the place I'm typing from when I am online, to give you a flavor of the place.

I'm enjoying going back to read your updates. It's exciting reading all the joy and wonder within your words, Billie :)
