The following was originally posted on my Not A Travel Writer sub-tumblr.

I’m pleased with this. As I mentioned previously, I suspect the final wordcount will be far fewer than 20K words, but we shall still see – I’m already reaching the major pivotal scene and I’m tempted to reduce the count to 10k, but I quite like seeing the bar in red.

Last night here in Chiang Mai it rained, very hard. I knew there had already bneen flooding north of here in Chiang Dao, so it wasn’t really a surprise, but it rained and rained and rained, heavy enough to flood over our gate (or beneath it – the water was not THAT high).

Every time it rains hard I wonder iff this will be the last time before the end of the rainy season, before the months of no rain. To me, it seems as though there was less frequent rain this year – but heavier when it did rain.

We have many tadpoles in the plant pots, a chorus of frogs to impress even Paul McCartney.
