None - totally obsessing over the novella

Things found lurking in the pages of the above: Spiders, mannequins, a stolen kiss, more spiders, a pyre of magazine's (the gentleman's kind), candy floss, coroner's stitches, hearts in jars, hearts in kidney shaped bowls, hearts in bodies, hearts not in bodies, hearts dribbling down thighs, even more spiders, love, and fear, and sorrow.

You share the best end of month posts.

Coroner's stitches are awfully ugly, aren't they?

Lee Thompson/Thomas Morgan/James Logan/Julian Vaughn said...

Awesome, Cate! And what wonderful finds in those pages!

Kara McElhinny said...

Those pages sound Beautiful, Cate. Simply beautiful. Can't wait to see them tied all together with a pretty red lace bow :)

Mercedes said...

Excellent! No days off at all? You rock 100%, Cate! :D

Fox Lee said...

That's a lot of hearts : )

Cate Gardner said...

They are, Aaron. You think they'd take some consideration just in case the person wakes up.

I do hope so, Lee

It would be a pretty bloody red lace bow, Kara ;)

I know, Mercedes. *Runs away*

It is, Natalie

Simon said...

Lots of hearts and quite a lot of spiders, too. Either way, the rockness factor is high! :)

Simon Kewin said...

Great stuff Cate! Deeply impressive word counts!

Deborah Walker said...

Hi, Cate. I see we're TOC buddies again as 'In Space No One Can Hear you Scream.' I'm looking foward to reading your story, or is it a poem?

Cate Gardner said...

Definitely overdosing on both, Simon B.

Thanks, Simon K.

Ditto, Deborah. Oh, and it's definitely a story. No (decent) poetry here.

Danielle Birch said...

That yearly word count is mighty impressive.

Tony said...

Somehow I had not been following your blog with google reader... That's crazy! Error fixed.

You're word counts put me to shame, dear lady. I won't be satisfied until I have more disembodied hearts peppering the page.

Cate Gardner said...

Thanks, Danielle

Crazy indeed, Tony.
