Dude... Wait... What?

I'm away with the faeries right now, as my grandmother would say. My brain isn't functioning properly, I'm feeling tired, and more than a little vague. Luckily for you, this translates into a very short blog post.

Writing yesterday went well. I got in the next 3 000 words. I even managed, later in the afternoon, to do around 49 pages of Beta Reading for my mother, who is working on a YA novel. I'm really enjoying it so far.

There is nothing much else to say, so I'll just give you today's Forgotten English and let you all get on with your lives.

Blacksmith's Daughter:

A lock or key to a door or gate, a padlock.
- J. Robertson's Glossary of Dialect and Archaic Words Used in ... Gloucester, 1890.

Poor girl.

Righty-o, I'm off to write some. I hope I can reach my target today! Have a good Thursday all.

"Away with the faeries" is a fantastic way of putting it. :D

My grandma was full of great little sayings like that. 'Away with the faeries' is my all-time favourite.
