Cracking on

Since complaining last night about how little progress I'd made, I've been stonking along. Ten thousand words edited today, and I'm really happy with this novel now.



I've just reached the chapter where one of my characters visits this viewpoint. I love both the view, and the description of it (which is grossly over-indulgent). The trouble is that this photo doesn't do it justice; the strait is straight, if you see what I mean, and, as a 180° panorama, this picture should really be viewed on a curved screen. So, if you wouldn't mind sticking your nose in the middle of it, and bending your screen around your head...there, that's better. That's what it looks like! Dramatic, eh?

Yes very! Especially the noise my computer screen made as I tried to bend it : 0 x

Good job I've got one of those new 'flexi-screens:-)

Well done with all that editing. You've coloured in many pixels!

And that view really is the most lovely vista, even in the photo:-)

How great is that view?!
Where is it?

Zinnia Cyclamen said...

Sounds as if the editing's going swimmingly.

That view is amazing - so tranquil, I would sit there all day...

Lovely view - my adverbs and adjectives would be off the scale if I had to try and describe it!

Helen - Ha! I'll make it a bigger picture next time, then you won't have to bend it so far!

Lane - no doubt we really will have them one day - big screens that we can fold up and put in our pockets.

Sarah *G* et al - The view is of Jura, from Islay, in the inner hebrides.

Thank you, Zinnia!

JJ - Actually, it's quite a good place to be...about half a mile from a distillery!

Jen - Thanks! And I did spend more time than was strictly necessary for making this photograph!

Karen - You made me go an look at which ads and adjs I'd used, and they weren't the ones I'd have expected. Funny that!
