Well I've spent the last half hour or so looking up what violets are meant to smell like and how they work in cakes because I'm writing a baking scene with violet - sort of - cakes. Other than that this short story is going well. I sent it to a friend, also doing the same assignment, and she sent back some wonderful feedback which is very useful. It's so easy to think 'oh that's fine, I'm sure it works'. It takes someone else to really point out those little things to let you know what doesn't work, or what does work. Of course there is constant editing and changing of the little things like the odd word, but sometimes you just need someone else to point it out to you. So I am very grateful for that, and all on fire again which is good.

Revision not so; but I suppose it is New Year's Day!
