I love writing ‘The End’ when I finish a manuscript. I’m not one of those obsessive authors who gets so attached to her characters she can’t bear to leave them.
(This is Such a lie – I wrote Seven volumes in the Iskander series because I just couldn’t bear to leave Ashley and Alexander!)
I think I’ve grown out of that now.

I’ve been playing this game a lot:
It takes a while to load, and the map is tiny, but it’s a fun challenge. I haven’t made it past stage 10. I’m learning a LOT of geography.

Thanks for the well wishes about my cold. It’s still there! I’m still all stuffy. But it’s just a cold (annoying, that’s all). Tuesday night I’m heading to the hammam where I intend to steam it out of me.
