Last night, while Child was tucked into the hotel bed and hubby was at a play, I had to make a choice. I had an hour and a half.

To my right, Spymaster's Lady was sitting seductively on the little table, taunting me. "Come read," called Annique. "You have only a few chapters left. I am in grave danger, me, and you must know what befalls me." Grey just threw me a look. "Come," he said. Just one word, but so powerful.

To my left, the laptop. The manuscript of Ghost Girl. Natalie. "Hello? I've been sitting here waiting for you for like, ever. In a mess, as usual. Will you come and help me out, please?" And then there's Tony, who's in this scene. Did I mention that Tony looks a little like James McAvoy?

Tough, right?

I'm happy to say that Tony and Natalie won. 800+ words. Finished the whole scene. Yay! And with time to spare. As a reward, guess what I got to read...

On a vacation note, it's bloody raining again. We had a great day yesterday, but it poured last night and is due to pour more today. LegoLand is looking more and more unlikely...
But Child is happy. The past couple of days she's had great fun, and right now we're going to go color the new Fairytopia coloring book with the new crayons, and that's pretty good for her. :)

Good for you!!

I'm sure I would have failed that one. (s)

This weekend I get 2 hours alone in a bookstore while Little Boy is at a birthday party. TWO HOURS! ALONE! And I have gift certificates!

And this matters because I'm hoping they'll have SPYMASTER'S LADY.
