Nothing but constant rain and it’s really getting on my wick! Every day I get up and it’s chucking it down, so I know that even before I leave the house I’ll be soaked through to my skin by the time I get to the day job. I mean, I like rain, but this is ridiculous. August is supposed to be sunny and pleasant and warm, but this is by far the wettest August I can ever remember. What for November: a heat wave???
I wrote out the second draft of the first section of October’s Scotland’s Treasure column, and completed the second draft of my Slick synopsis and got it down to 8 pages but it still needs a lot of work. It’s really just the listed story points but assembled into paragraphs. Now it needs that creative touch to give it a hook and keep an editor reading and get them salivating. Plus, I need to lose 6 pages!
And now, as promised long ago, here’s a selection of pictures from my trip to Rome in May this year.
Rome, May 2008
DAY 1 – The Colosseum, The Roman Forum, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Trevis Fountain, and some of me looking stupid
(Days 2 and 3 tomorrow)
