nova, spectres


Wrote about 1000 words on Spectres, bringing me to 12,075 words. Not much, but it'll do for now. I'm gonna spend the next couple of days on this, then do the next chapter of Ghost Academy over the weekend, then back to Farscape at the top of next week.

In the 18th century, it was said that Belgian laborers spent a quarter of their wages on drink--on ordinary days, they took six drams, on festal days more. These drams were named:

The Worm-killer5.30am
The Eye-opener8am
The Whip11am
The Digester2pm
The Soldier5pm
The Finisher7.30pm

Authors are easy to get on with--if you're fond of children.

I should probably finish writing the book...........................
