I've been keeping busy trying to complete the rewrite of Angels in the Flames. There's a lot of new material for a rewrite. It's a total make-over with many additions. I have two more chapters to get down and revised and re-edited before I can resubmit the novel to TouchWood. I still hope to get it off to the publishers by Easter, but time's a flittin' and I will have to work many hours to get it done. This morning I was at kindergarten and tomorrow morning I will be at the UBC Farm with the grade five children. Tomorrow evening is the service of Tenebrae at St. James, but it's quite late so we might not go. Thursday morning we won't go to Mass, because we'll be at the evening Maundy Thursday service followed by our vigil. Then there's the long service on Good Friday, beginning with Stations of the Cross at 11am, and the venerations will last until about 3pm. The next day is Holy Saturday and we'll go to the Vigil Mass, and then it's Easter. For me to finish that novel by then .... Well, it won't be easy. Can I do it? We'll see, but if I were a gambler I wouldn't bet on it. I can but try.
