finished the first draft of a novel over 10 years ago. It has been languishing since then, waiting for me to edit, rewrite, etc. It is no coincidence that this coincides with my moving to Ireland, getting married and having kids.

But now I'm wanting to get back to it. Time has moved on and parts of the story, while prescient when written, now are a bit dated.

It's MASSIVE. Over 800 pages.

I'm daunted but desperate to get at it again.

A good old-fashioned murder mystery, Kerry.

Right! I'm off to the park with the little man. He's driving me up the wall grin

Try and get something done this afternoon!

mouse problem sad

will have to forego commencement of work for a day or two while I murder the bastards and clean up their mess.

Murdering the bastards and then cleaning up the mess is pretty much the premise of my book grin

Never mind, KM. At least you don't have snakes!

Kerry! Don't trifle with me young lady. Two days to clean mouse-shit! Good grief.
I expect your book report on my desk - tomorrow.

onebat - I'm a germ phobe. And I keep finding new shit! And I'll have to wash all tins, etc. I got buckets with lids to put grains in. Have to wash those as well (dusty).

I hate mice. sad
