It really feels like autumn today — cold, a little windy, overcast skies. So here’s a little taste of summer to savor.
I even make pumpkin puree today, which makes me sound so productive. It was the easiest thing I’ve ever made. You roast the pumpkin whole for like an hour, let it cool, then scoop out the good stuff and throw it in a food processor. Easy peasy. I guess I should add one more instruction — before you roast the pumpkin, make 4 or 5 cuts around the top to vent. This prevents the pumpkin from exploding. Yes, definitely remember that step.
While the pumpkin was cooking, I edited like crazy. I have made the changes suggested by the beta readers and just need to rewrite the last chapter. Then I need to decide what to do about a couple scenes in the middle — combine? Throw one out completely? Not sure yet, but I have about a week to make my decision.
