Words in the chaos
Son 2 was noisy and active yesterday. But during a short period of relative calm, I actually managed to write a little more of the novel.
Only 300 words or so, but I was actually also researching at the same time. I am currently writing a scene set in Hong Kong before it was handed back to the Chinese. We did visit the colony many years ago, but some of my memories are hazy, so I keep having to stop to look up a name or some other detail. Did you know, for example, that you can create a Chinese name for a character through this name generator?
Three notable things:
1. Why was Dermot O'Leary so rude to Celine Dion on Saturday's X Factor?
2. Son 2 hates this advert so much that he turns off the TV every time it comes on...
3. The cold is making feel yucky today, so I'm not even going to try to write.
