One character does something illegal in Poppyfield Farm. Although the result has a big impact, I don't think I could convince anyone it's a crime novel, even if I was eligible to enter.
I've written lots of short stories recently but made very little progress on my novel. I don't know which is cause and which effect. Carol says putting her word count on her blog helped her get through her first draft so I'm going to try that myself. Will you nag me if it doesn't go up?
Being me, I'm working in a picture of the garden too. My aim is to double the figure by the time it's backed by colchicums and dahlias.
