First blossom and first draft.


Two weeks later than last year, Provence is in bloom. If you look behind the blossom you can still see the last (?) of the snow on the mountain.


The air smells of violets. I have a tan already as I have been sitting out on the terrace in twenty degrees, cuddling an ill cat, working my way through a walnut tart inspired by a walnut painting and reading through my first draft. It's off to my first reader tomorrow.

I volunteer to read. I am a very good reader and pretty good editor!

Brava on your first draft! Had to share the good news with my other half, who hasn't even started his first draft. Big mistake! But I'm thrilled for you and impatient for publication.

thank you everyone, and zuleme i may well take you up on your kind offer. For the moment I think I might deal with one reader at a time and I have my first, but will definitely need more in time. Thank you! by the way aren't you coming round these parts soon?
