I didn’t take a picture of my actual pancake, eggs and sausage because they got in my belly so fast. So this picture will have to do. In my defense, I did skip the syrup.
Dinner was great. I met with one of my good friends. Yes I may have bad friends, thank you for asking. It was great to hear about his novel, and the short story he is completing for a contest. I haven’t seen either yet. However, he was brave enough to wade through an early draft of my first eight chapters. He gave great constructive feedback. The most surprising was that he liked chapters five through eight better than the first four. I “worked” harder on the first four. He found an odious form of prose, rhythmic with an up-tilt of nose sometimes identified as purple prose. I don’t think I write that way. Very often? ;). Page, grab my editing saber from its sheath! I really appreciated the feedback. I found I can relax a bit.
Hope you enjoyed your dinner as much as I.
