This post could be subtitled 'The Kinder Myth', explaining my absence from the computer, both blogging and writing. We've all had a run of bad health - nothing serious, but enough to be keeping us from our commitments. I'd forgotten about these early years of the education system, when little immune systems aren't as strong as they could be and kids seem to pick up everything on offer! The result: my manuscript continues to grow, but slowly. Word count is sitting on 58,790, which is a reflection of the editing and rewriting that's occurring at the moment. There's not going to be any major changes to the structure from now on - it's more the fine tuning stage that I've reached… and it could take quite some time!
