I don’t know what the weather is like where you are, but here’s it’s definitely getting on the nippy side. Tomorrow night’s supposed to get down into the teens. This fact, coupled with the ever increasing cost of heating oil right now, makes me very glad to have 4 cord of wood in my yard. (Almost done stacking it, too–yay!) Of course, other than the cold (which no doubt will seem warm in a few more months compared to the temperatures that lie in wait), the weather’s been very nice the last few days. Sunny and clear. In less than a week, we’ll be heading down to Pennsylvania for a nice long Thanksgiving break, which I’m really looking forward to.
Better still, I’ve figured out how to rewrite the climax of Ichabod, and I think it’s actually going to work. This is a big relief, as it was the weakest remaining part of the novel I had yet to fix. Now to actually write it and see what the test readers think.
