in the summer are hard writing days for me. I write on a little porch that is all windows so I can supervise my garden. It is very hot when the sun is out. That is when I lose all interest in the Marys and think that soon it will be February and so I should be at the beach. Swimming. But then I think about my car which is on the edge of implosion and worry that if I don’t hurry up and turn this book in, I won’t get a check, and then what will I do when the car does implode. Borrow. But I am not sure how much more money I can borrow. And, Mary still has not had her famous nightmare. I am curious to know if anyone has read Daisy Hay’s new book, Young Romantics.
