Sunday was wonderful:

     Made good progress on my ongoing art project, and also finally made a human mug-shot for my Triune characters page, since I've already got 5 hyarmi ones and 4.5 avarii. Glad my scheme with the beard worked and saved me hours of hair-pulling!

     Got a delightful phone call from my aunt, who is having a great time rereading the first Geren book and spotting things she hadn't particularly noticed before.

     Some great progress with my book 5 outline notes, which I had left in disarray after finishing book 4 last winter. Got some chapter titles chosen too--no way I can write without those!

     But best of all, Sunday was the day I kicked off the autumn 2009 writing season...by writing the prologue to book 5! It has been well over a decade I've been looking forward to putting that scene in words; still can't quite believe I've done it!

     (Small print for any potentially overly-excited book 4 readers: I won't be going straight into book 5 chapter 1 just yet, but it is getting closer!)
Emotional Status:
indescribable pinching myself

Wow, that's great news! I'm glad to hear that things are going so well. Do you know what triggered it off? Has the weather been cooler? Or was it just time?

Thanks!

No, the weather has been warmer, but I did get some good sleep over Labor Day weekend (Sept 5-7) and it felt like it was time. Waiting another week would put me near the equinox, which would aggravate me. ;)

I am so happy to know you actually wrote the prologue for book 5. That is
just great.
I pray that you will have a very fruitful writing season this fall and
winter.

Ahhh... Finally caught up on the posts!! =)

Congrats on all your success! Is Bk 5, Ch 1 done yet?? ;)

By the way... Got Mikey's bday card yesterday (when going through all our vacation mail) -- It was perfect! He was so excited about it (as was Elly!) as he had just mastered the "reading" of Brown Bear, Brown Bear this past week... =)

Feels like you guys have been gone forever! ;)

Hah hah, no--hopefully I can start on Saturday. Very happy to hear that Mikey really liked his card!
