Luckily I did not have to go out today because it's been like this since lunch time. I had an excuse too - Rob managed to take my keys to work with him, effectively locking me in the house as far as the normal door we use is concerned. I would have had to use the french windows or the front door if I had needed to go out and anyone calling at the normal side door would have been shafted. There isn't even a letter box on it to shout through - LOL.
I'm currently working on a YA contemporary fantasy novel while sending off the one Soph and I have done together to agents. I'm 11,000 wds in and it's going spiffingly, even if I do say so myself. Soph and I are also working on the second novel in the series we have planned; we have it all worked out scene by scene (takes a while but is so worth the effort) and we're going to start the actual writing next month.
