My Lenten resolve

Yes, I know it's late but I've been away.

And I'm not giving up anything but setting myself the aim of:
a) losing 4 lbs;
b) finishing the first draft of novel 3;
by Easter. That is, in four weeks.

I'm struggling with both at the moment. I feel very tired and very hungry. If I had chocolate I would eat it now. And I am sitting here at my computer blogging about my intentions instead of getting on with the novel. I am procrastinating. 

I haven't looked at my manuscript for a few weeks and I know - I hope - once I get back to it I'll soon get in the spirit again, but right now all I want to do is go to sleep. And eat chocolate.

Whenever I think about my novel I say to myself, 'I wish I could be writing now as I have lots of ideas,' but as soon as I have the opportunity ... well, here I am blogging.

So I'll stop. Now. In a minute ...

P.S. 1,423 words done. Not bad. That takes me up to 75,724.

Leslie, one good day followed by one bad! Ah well.

I don't blame you there, anne!

It is right now, katney, as I'm off out but not usually, you're right.

I read somewhere that large Toblerones are going for a pound in pound shops.
