The weather at the moment is lovely, not that I've seen a great deal of it as I'm still buried under work. I'm hoping to get my course work finished this week and then to make my schedule I need to write one chapter of Crystal Clear and one of A Scattering of Leaves to meet my target for this month.
The crows of doubt have been pecking really hard at me this week despite the lovely review from Star magazine and I've been having a wobble over whether Crystal Clear is working. Logically I know I had the same crisis over Animal Instincts but even so it's hard to shake off those 'I am crap' feelings.
I'm sure I'll get over it, I am the worlds worst judge of my own work so I'll press on and finish, polish and let my editor be the judge of the level of my crapitude. The plot for my next story - Just Look at Me Now is forming nicely in my head and I'm starting to itch to begin it so I think that may be adding to my mood.
I think I need some sunshine - and seaside. I desperately miss the sea when I haven't been for a while and I think my Easter holiday to the New Forest will do a lot to pick me up.

LOL re craptitude. I hear ya!
I always seem to think 'Yes I can do this, the angels are singing loud' between chapter one and five'. Chapter Six I'm bashing myself on the head that I even tried, Chapter Eight I'm convinced I'm the worst writer ever to string a sentence.

Needless to say I'm not quite finished chapter ten yet and the 'writing imposter truffle pigs' are snuffling hard around me!

Hugs you will do eeet!!! I know you are ace!
