Today's post is on the nature of time. I am full of beans - think this diet is working finally and feel my energy returning. I walked Hoagy at a good brisk trot and came back to check email, eat my weird breakfast with the notion of getting out the door by nine. That part has to happen. I read Elizabeth's post (Writing is Murder) and thought about the fact that I need to get this thing out to more publishers. Or agents. I go back and forth with this. I'm told that I don't need an agent in Canada but many of the publishers (including now Midnight Ink) require it. They are hard to come by in Canada and I really wanted this to be a fairly Canadian project since my plan is to write several in this series based in some of the fantastic spots in Atlantic Canada. I just finished Louise Penny's Still Life and I thought it was pretty good. Her series is set in a small town in Quebec. She has an English agent and that may be because she won the Crime Writers' Association New Blood Dagger Award - a British association. Her agent will take a look at unsolicited manuscripts. So I will give her a try.
As for writing, well dear readers, yesterday when Gwen was here I started ANOTHER novel. It is a Kitty MacDonald but it is set in Annapolis Royal. I'm pretty pumped about it actually. I thought I should get at it while all the locations were so vividly in my mind. I include a couple of photos from where the crimes occur!
Now it is a bit past nine and I have to fly outa here!
