Even the queen of procrastinators (yours truly) eventually has it all catch up with her!
I am currently working on the first of a three-book series about three young (mid-twenties) women who attended the same girls’ boarding school in their teens. Although the three come from well-connected families, they are all independent-minded “bluestockings” who operate, not at all unhappily, outside the central circles of society.
Getting the first book off and running has been something of a chore—and remember: I am the queen of procrastinators! The deadline for the finished first novel is June 30. (Arrgh!) I have five chapters written (of a projected 22-25).
Hassles aside, I’m enjoying the work. It is a take-off on the Pygmalion/My Fair Lady story with my heroine taking the Pygmalion/Professor Higgins role. Set in 1814, it also involves political intrigue around Napoleon’s exile to the island of Elba. I hope you will like it.
So—I am taking leave of the blogosphere for a while—at least a month—but I shall return! Hope to reconnect (resume?) with you then.
