Shameless Lion Writing Circle

Well the developing story of Grace has stepped up a pace; side characters have been introduced and we are getting some back-story on what has led Grace to that initial taxi ride in New York.

The contributors are up to eight now and the logistics of people reading it and preparing their next installments are making it even more of a challenge. I am dreading being nominated for a contribution, there are so many threads to draw together... a bit like deciding when to start reducing stitches for the armholes when you're knitting the back of a jumper - this row or maybe two rows on...

I think they're going to need chapters at this rate of going!

Knitting towards a jumper! Yes, it feels like that! Will it be snug and cosy when it's finished, a becoming colour? :-)

That makes me think of my mother's lovely freewheeling multi-coloured ones that she made from odds and ends - they ended up becoming very desirable items and I was asked to make some for other people... yes, cosy, I think.

That knitting analogy is a good 'un!

I was very glad to be tagged early on for this, I was dreading the prospect of being tagged somewhere near the end! There's definitely something very jumper knitting to it all! :-)

Tell me about it! When my turn comes I think I'll put a good bit of knitting in it...

So there'll be a knitting element? Grace is a knitter?:-)
