One Word Photo Challenge

One Word Photo Challenge: Lemon

This photo was taken today (on my Nokia smartphone) for Jennifer’s One Word Photo Challenge: Lemon. I was busy cleaning (at work) when Mr R reminds me that the Lake Eppalock Gold Cup is on this weekend. He insists I come into the other room where he could see a boat from a window. So, grudgingly, I do and am glad I did. I’m amazed. I imagined I was about to see an oversized sleek speedboat, not something shaped like a spacecraft. And then, something about it hits me. Lemon, the boat is lemon! Perfect for Jennifer’s challenge.

After looking at the Victorian Speed Boat Club’s website, I find this ‘boat’ is called HBR, and is a 1.6lt Hydroplane, with a 1.6lt Toyota Twin Cam Engine.

I nearly settled for showing you wattle again, from earlier in the year.

I hope you like my photos – I’m comfortable with taking selfies, now. I hated it at first. 🙂

I’m pleased to report a break-through with my novel. I know exactly how it is going to end.

Last night, while sweeping out a couple of toilet cubicles at work, the finale suddenly came together in my head. Excited, I  started packing up the car. Then I remembered I still had to clean the workmen’s wash-up sink. I mentioned this to Mr R, and he expressed surprise that I’d cleaned the toilets already. Oops, forgot those too! As soon as I could, I jotted down notes in my phone – not likely to forget, though.  Now I’m confident that I will have my novel ready to publish by the end of the year.

I wonder if I will weaken and try the traditional submission process first – just to see what it will be like to get knocked back. Stephen King racked up lots of rejection slips before he made it. I shouldn’t deprive myself of the experience.
