I'm still rewriting the novel I'm turning in for TNEO and am at about 58K with the idea that it'll be about 80K when it's all said and done. That deadline is looming larger every day. I will not jinx myself and say how it's going.

I've got one new short story written and critiques in hand. That one will be out the door in the next few weeks, time permitting for revision. And I've started plotting the next story.

I've done five critiques so far. I'm glad I signed up for the extended novel group. Reading large chunks of other peoples' novels has been quite enjoyable. The only downside is I want to keep reading them. Curse those people for writing interesting stories!

In non-writing news, I planted a square foot garden this year. Here it is, all cute and snuggly in its cedar box:




And, er, obviously I just planted it since there's nothing green in it yet. I hope that changes soon. And I've already caught the dog sniffing at it with way too much interest.

Beautiful garden! I hope everything comes up strong and healthy.

Heh. Looks like an archaeology dig site. But I guess they use strings instead of lattices. And find bones instead of plants.

It does look like an archaeology site, doesn't it? I'd better not find bones in it, though. *shudder*

Carrots? Carrots! Does this look like the place where Bugs Bunny gets turned around all the time? Oh, wait a minute....

This is a chocolate garden. See, there's dark chocolate in the back row, and red pepper chocolate in the next, and chocolate covered truffles in the next.

(sorry, I swear I'll stop replying to really old posts now... it really does seem ridiculously late to have just started reading people's old posts this go-round) BUT I just had to say I LOVE that song.

I just started *really listening* to the words of "Pretty in Pink" recently and it's so sad! It's like a character in a story.
