Fun Book Signing Plus Progress on Next Story

I had such a great time Thursday evening. My husband and I were guests at the local Kiwanis Club Valentine dinner. Following the meal, I did the program, speaking about the experience of my first Love Inspired sale. They were a great audience, and had lots of fun questions.

Then I was suprised to find out our local bookseller, Tom Vail with Corner Bookstore, had sent books for a signing! I was thrilled to be able to have the impromptu event. (Well, impromptu for me. Dewey Bentley, who'd invited me, had arranged it ahead of time.) It was a great night. And to top it off, they gave me a box of chocolates as a gift!

As you see in my blog title, I mention progress on my next story. I've been so frustrated because the writing has been slow and difficult lately. But this weekend, my husband and children went to visit grandparents. I had total peace and quiet most of Friday (the kids were out of school), all last night, then most of today. By the time they returned at dinner time today, I had written about 8000 words (6400 of them today)! I'm thrilled. I may just finish the story this weekend! :)

Let me also add here that my spellcheck doesn't seem to work in Blogger anymore. Has anyone else had that problem? Or have I accidentally turned something off? The little button is still up on the menu bar, but it doesn't do anything when I click on it. (So I apologize for all spelling errors for the last few weeks!)

my spell checker underlines a word but doesn't help me spell it.
and it seems to not like aussie spelling.

My spellcheck USED to highight incorrect words in red, then I could click on them to get suggested spellings.

I'm clueless. :)
