I am in the process of memorizing all things Canadian. 10 provinces, 3 territories. What's the capital of Yukon territory, quick? I always think of Calvin losing Hobbes when he was acting stupid in the Yukon.
Yesterday I finally worked up the nerve to post a chapter of my novel to my online critique group. Today I had two encouraging replies with useful suggestions. Excellent. One suggestion was to add sensory detail of my character eating a muffin. I think this will require much research and taste-testing : )
Current location: Ashtabula OH en route back to Montreal.
Current mood: happy and motivated by critiques
Current weather: blowing snow. pretty.
Apparently the weather in Montreal is crap: wind-driven rain on top of ice. Would someone please appease the weather gods before I get there? yuk.
