Towel Monkey

Today I've scrawled over half of my novel AND hoovered the flat.

No tantrums so far thank goodness. The stories I read were definitely salvagable with some tweaks, polish and rearranging. Part of the reason I'm having an easier time is because the novel is now by someone that I cannot stand. And they have to clean up the mess that I've left behind.

The parts I've scrawled 'good' beside are all the sweeter now.

When my fingers ached from overuse of the red pen, I pushed the hoover around. My mind cycled through the notes and ideas in day dreams that also include Las Vegas and my new shocking pink suitcase.

After I clean the bathroom I'll attempt this.

Ha ha. Love the towel monkey. When we go into hotels here they've often made flowers or swans from the towels. It's very impressive.

The towel monkey is great, I love it when hotels do that.
Well done on the editing.

JJ, I'd never heard of towel monkeys before my boyfriend sent the link, will have to visit Thailand to see for myself!

Alix, thanks! It's slow going but I'm chipping away at it.

Hi, found you via Cally's site. I love the sound of your novel. Think I may have to make a towel cat!
