The herbs are going great guns! The pot that came up first (that I talked about in a previous blog posting) is in the back right of the photo but it's been overtaken by a herb growing at an astonishing rate in the back left! I think that's the sweet marjoram but I've got no idea. Pretty sure I know which pot contains the chives though ;o)
Will have to re-pot the marjoram soon as it's grown too big for the plastic greenhouse but that leaves a bit of a problem... what to do with them all? I've cooked with basil, thyme, coriander and parsley before but never marjoram or chives. What do I do with them?
In other news the rewrite is coming along well. I'm on 86% at the moment and the best part of a weekend to do the final 14%.
The trouble is I've got a terrible attention span so need a take a couple of hours break after every 2%! It all depends on the scene I'm rewriting too. Some scenes are a joy and I speed through them, enjoying every word. Other scenes...well...I just have to read the opening sentence and my heart sinks and I think "Gawd, this one is going to need some serious work". That's when I take a break. It's like I need to go away and build up the strength to return to it!
Still, not much more to do. I swear here and now that this is my last rewrite of this novel. No more. Well, unless an agent signs me and asks me to make changes or *cough* I get a publishing deal and the editor asks me to make changes. I really, really, really want to get back to novel #2. I miss the bit about writing that's to do with imagination and excitement rather than grammar and sentence construction!
