cloudy, some sunny periods, cools and windy...temps 15
We can smell the smoke from the forest fires way up in Northern Quebec, so huge are they. Disconcerting. Not because we're in any danger, but just knowing how much is being destroyed. And the threat to people's homes and way of life - most of whom are native. Terrible. Apparently the burning can be smelt as far south as Maine.
Very frightening for the people. I remember well the wild fires in Australia a year ago.
Had a fun board meeting this morning, organizing the SPCA tea. Going to be a great event.
Spent the rest of the day editing nd writing...until seven pm. Then made dinner. Writing/editing going well but much slower than I expectd. The first draft is close to right - but not quite...so to get it right I actually have to do alot of writing. i'm enjoying it, and very pleased with how the second draft is reading. But wow is it a hard slog.
Still, the job now is to get it right. Quality, not quantity, I keep reminding myself. Even if this draft takes until August, if I get it right it's much better than being finished in June, but needing yet another severe re-write.
Feel like the blog is dull - not much energy or creativity left by the time I blog these days. Sorry! But I do think of you.
Lovely, quiet day tomorrow. Just writing. Yay.
