So I managed to rewrite that scene yesterday. As I mentioned over at Annette's blog, it was pretty awful at first. Every word was like pulling a tooth or , but I did finally get going. It still needs some more setting details, but at least it's done! I moved Cécile and Adrian from the conservatory to the gallery - I already know more about galleries from having studied Art History than I do about conservatories/orangeries. Adding Adrian's pov certainly seemed to help things, though there might be a bit too much introspection. Hmmm. Anyway, at least it's done and I can move on to the next scene that needs rewriting.
So that's my goal for today - get some more rewriting done. Then, once I've rewritten all the scenes, I can go back and add the extra details. Whew. Still lots to do, but I just have to keep on plugging :-)
Today is a sad day for me, though. It's been a year since we said goodbye to our kitty pal, Scotty. I still miss him a lot - his pic is in my screensaver and now it's winter again, I miss having him curled up next to me in bed. Ah well, he and George are romping together in kitty heaven - happy and healthy. And we have our girls to keep us company now :-)
On Friday I admit I'm taking time out to go to a big book sale. It's an annual event, but likely the last time I'll be able to go for quite a while, what with moving to the West Coast and all. And I can justify it quite easily - I almost always find great research books there!
