Day Nine - a dismal day of words!

Day Nine

Word Count: 338

Fave Line: 'Ah... Spar, the heigh of Cameron's Loch culture.'

Total words thus far: 8964

And my exciting news is I finalled in the Romance Writers of Australia Valerie Parv Award with a mss I thought would never final in any contests due to its controversial nature. Can't wait to see what the judges thought of it but will have to wait till August when the winner is announced! Patience is a virtue and all that stuff!!!
