Finally, Those Damn Rome Pictures

The Ranfurly Review – Out Now!

Instead of the rumoured Indian Summer, cold and crisp mornings seem to have arrived early here in Edinburgh. That’s how the days have been starting lately since September turned, with heavy rain coming on in the afternoons. I won’t be surprised to hear that this has been the wettest Scottish summer on record when they gather the stats. Must be global warming, eh? Better start recycling.

I queried a freelance gig today. Not the highest paying proofreading gig but high enough.
Most of my work – in fact all of it – was on Greener is the Grass (GITG), the counter for which (see end of post) has been reset to reflect where I am with the editing of the story from 1st person to 3rd person present tense. Note I said present – it just feels right. That’s another shift from 3rd past. *sigh*

It’s moving a lot better now after a particularly sticky start. In fact, I can’t remember having such a great idea story but having so many problems arrive on my desk when I start to write. Still, it’s all part of the game.

Remember those Rome pics I had been going on about? Well here’s day’s two and three here:
