Those in the Know will be thrilled to hear that I have rounded that first crucial quarter turn in my sacred quest to deliver the great Canadian-American novel to the world! It is a wonderful feeling to be nearly one tenth of the way toward my goal!
The other day when I passed the 10,000 word mark, I told Scott that I had completed 1/5 of my novel and he thought he could confuse me later by referring to that day's achievement as "20%" of the novel. Naturally, I brushed aside his smarty-pants joke. It may be true that I am

Good Day to All!
*tête à tête : another sophisticated French gem from moi to you. It means delicious supper accompanied by fine french wine. Use it with my compliments.
