Day 11 in the Burrow

And with the temperature peaking at 39.2 C today that's where I stayed most of the day (burrowed away in the air conditioning.) Even the little flower seedlings were trying to stay cool under the umbrella.
On the writing front I jumped out of bed and began another rewrite of the pic book, following the publisher's advice. I also sat and thought about my novel's 'story', writing a 3 sentence, 2 sentence and 1 sentence pitch. It really helps to condense your story into few words - what's' the character's problem, what do they want, what do they have to do to get it, and what or who is stopping them? For your own sake it clarifies the plot.

The little seedling flowers are being shaded by the umbrella because the sun is HOT, HOT, HOT, ouch. The difference in temperature between shade and sunshine is remarkable.
