I grew up reading Regencies. I miss the old days when relatively chaste comedies of errors were the norm. They're still the best kind of historicals, IMO (and really, the only romances I can stand to read these days). Those thngs did wonderful things for my vocabulary & knowledge of English history.

Okay. Second post in a row to say: I made it to 100 pages! ::

Along the way, I discovered that my main character has not one but two tattoos, and an eyebrow piercing. And the hero has this tattooed on his stomach.

Ain't it wonderful when they surprise you?

Sabra, congratulations on your achievement.

aikigypsy, thanks for the books ideas, which are surely better than the ones I checked out of the library! I do have Strunk and White's, and another called Spunk & Bite, which is downright silly with a few useful tips thrown in.

I love re-writing!!!!!!!!!

How do you find readers? Local writing groups? Internet writing groups?

How's everyone else doing?

Jenny, reading & writing mama of dd(18), ds(6), and ds(3)
