So why not work from the office on the weekends? Well, cause the office is on the third floor, I’m arthritic, and want to be in the thick of what goes on in the house during the weekend, and don’t want the temptation of doing work for the publishing house instead of writing.
Then, voila, lightning struck my brain! Doh! Why not use DropBox for The Rose Guardian files (thanks to J.W.Schnarr for this oblique epiphany) and access them remotely from the laptop on the main floor. Brilliant.
Did I say how much I love DropBox?
Was able to work in my favourite channel back chair in the dining-room. Bashed out nearly 1200 words of solid story. Very happy with that. And very much look forward to another wee go round after I put together green pea soup, and set rice pudding to baking.
So, months of cogitating have helped. DropBox has helped. Feeling very confidant this novel which has been in the works some three years now will finally come to fulfilment by end of February. Then my first reader will review and I’ll set to a revision. Should have the revision to Robert Runte by fall I expect. Depending on his schedule, I may have a novel ready for publication by spring of 2015.
Anyone who thinks writing is easy is just plain insane.
