When I was growing up, everyone I had a crush on was 33. I had a crush on Stephen Fry when he was 33, and I had a crush on Kenneth Branagh when he was 33. (And to be embarrassingly honest, I had crushes on most of the rest of the cast of Peter's Friends when they were 33 too).

Richard III died at 33, and so (allegedly) did Jesus.

The reason I fought to get these three months of work is that if I don't get my novel accepted for publication, or do something else fabulous while I'm still 33, I'll be really, really upset.

Anyway, I've just finished a draft of the spreadsheet which tells me what happens in each chapter, and entirely without fiddling, the story as I see it happens in 33 chapters.

Given that I don't do superstition,* it's silly that I'm quite as pleased about this as I am.



* My mind's the wrong shape for it, so I have to concentrate very hard to manage the Christianity thing, and there's no energy left for anything else.
