Life. A team game?

I have a big re-write to do of the book. Big. But life is getting in the way. Who knew that renovating a flat could be so stressful and time consuming? Who knew that decisions about warm white spotlights versus cool white spotlights could be so paralysing. And if that wasn't bad enough, the Olympics came along. Distraction destruction. So I have alloted myself October and November to write the next (and hopefully final) draft. The moment I made that official (in my head), my guilt started to recede as did my writing paralysis. So in order not to get in the way of such rare moments of 'creativity', I have written another blog for the Huffington Post. It's about the Olympics and Cancer and Bradley Wiggins. Of course! Feel free to share it with the world. It might help me get beyond the 81% I am on now and land me firmly into the 90's. Percentage I mean. Not the decade. I am not sure I can go through that again! Although, you know what they say. Things can only get better!
