Are you melting today? We’re melting today. It’s GK’s first day of Grade 11. And she has homework. Very frustrating homework. One question is: You’ve discovered a new element: A=302, Z=119. How many protons, neurons and electrons are there?
She bent a plastic pencil in half. I read her textbook and I can’t tell her either. Hopefully, her classmates will be able to.
Meanwhile, I recently finished the third edit on HW2. I passed it on to a friend of mine who loves my writing but is brutally honest. Always has been. She has edited for me before. I asked her to look for stupid errors that I’ve missed. I haven’t looked at the results yet because I wanted to share the content of her return email.
I’m sorry this took me longer than I expected it to. But I am so happy to have been asked. I highlighted the changes I made in case you want to change things back and left notes at the end of each chapter. There is one exception, a joke I had to mention, couldn’t stop myself. Overall the story is wonderful, sexy and heartwarming. I cried when he proposed and when he was scared of her I cried with her, earning me some funny looks around here. simply put, I loved the book.
Isn’t that wonderful? I love it when I can affect people like that. THIS is why I write. Why I wish more people could see my books. Why I don’t understand people like the book stores who say “this isn’t our thing.” What? Evocative writing isn’t for you? Why do you manage a store in the largest chain in Canada?
*coughs* End rant. Sorry.
I think what kitty wrote here is fantastic.
Wait, I have to find the joke.
Found it! Kitty is from Arizona, (USA), which, for those who don’t know, is a desert state. When I was there, a Canadian from a humid province, I had to make the following joke myself, at least once. (Probably more than once, knowing me. *laughs*)
The line from the story – where Anna, Liam and Chelle had just stepped into the first circle of Hell – is: The heat took their breath away and, gasping, Anna managed to make an old North American joke, “At least it’s a dry heat.” She wheezed out a laugh.
Kitty’s joke: “In my head I saw it continued …just like Arizona.”
*grins* There is a reason we’re friends.
I’m off to make dinner now. I had to share her praise with you. I love it.
Have a grand evening (or day for you Aussies).
