Added PRIDE’S CHILDREN – Chapter 15, Scene 8

This week sees the end of Chapter 15, with Scene 8 (1.15.8).

NJ had a good week, weatherwise: sun, some rain, weather in the range I consider normal: 68 – 75 (okay, some days were more humid). That’s what happens when you;re born in Southern California and grow up in Mexico City: you take nice weather for granted. Well, I’ve had enough of mid-Atlantic weather (is that what they call it?) to last the rest of my life – you can stop it now, and go back to normal. No? What’s the problem?

Oh, well.

The garden looks glorious, and for once I didn’t have a huge amount to do with it: I could get used to that. OTOH, Life doesn’t seem to be getting any easier – it’s always something!

Here is this week’s quote (thanks,

She inspected the man who stood on her doorstep looking oddly determined, and who had taken the trouble to wear a suit and tie under a navy cashmere peacoat. No plaid? “You drove all the way out here, at night, to dissuade me?” - Kary Ashe, Pride's Children, Chapter 15

I seem to be doing relatively well lately getting up, taking my B1, and getting to the writing within a couple of hours – and actually finishing some of those scenes up ahead (as we get closer than I’d like here to the end of my reserve). It helps not to eat carbs, for my brain. Too bad – I’d eat nothing but if I had my druthers.

BTW, doing everything yourself around the house is vastly overrated. And interferes not so much with writing time – as I can garden, etc., after I’ve finished writing on some days – as with the mental condition required to write the NEXT day. It feels good – and the next day I stare at the wall all morning, with nothing to show for it, not a word. Delayed reaction – quite common to us CFS folk. I just can’t afford it.

Additional beta readers welcome – contact me if you’d like to participate (and get to read things earlier). Pride’s Children is a mainstream contemporary novel, suitable for mature adolescents and adults, set in the world of those who entertain the rest of us. It asks questions such as who is allowed to want? And what matters in the long run? And how will fame and fortune break you? And who is foe and who is friend?

Typo reports, etc., extremely welcome! Thanks!
