a second epiphany  

I had another epiphany about SPIRIT DANCES at about 3am this morning. Sadly, it was only an epiphany which highlighted another place where I’d screwed up, rather than one which illuminated how to fix it. I’ve more or less figured out the fix over the course of the day, though, so that’s good.

Revisions currently stand at 43K of an original 60. I have to write some new material before I can drop a few chapters back in. I’m sure I’ll end up with 50K after revisions. Not sure I’ll quite have reached 60. Oh well. Anyway, hopefully I’ll finish revisions by Friday and can start striving for the end of the book on Monday. :p

In other exciting news, I think the new Doctor Who will be just fine, we decided on Monday to stop eating sweets and right now I would commit terrible acts for a cookie, and … that’s it. Not much exciting news in my life right now. :)

Do they sell Girl Scout cookies in Ireland?

Re: Temptations
They do not, thank heavens, because if I had any I'd be eating them.

The next time you want a cookie, rewatch the scene of Eleven eating fish sticks and custard. TOGETHER.

That should help.

...good idea. Egh.

Repeat after me: Homemade flapjacks are not sweets. They are healthy and nutricious snacks that are full of fibre and are very good for you.

A flapjack is such a different thing to an American that even though I know what you're talking about I still find it slightly confusing. :)

Once you drop sugar, you eventually not only lose the craving for it but you find that sweet things just don't taste that good anymore.

Wish I could tell you how long that takes.

it takes 10-12 days for me to stop wanting it. I have yet to lose the taste for it. :)
