There are times you love being called a bitch

Writing has kicked in, and no, I'm not working on my thief book.  Instead, the divorce book is talking to me.  Yes, I'm starting a romance off in divorce court.  Call me weird, but it is something I've always wanted to do. 

I took the first chapter to my writers retreat for open critique.  I warned them it was a rough draft, that I really just wanted a clue if the concept was going to work - and I got called a bitch - because not only did they love the idea, but I didn't make a single grammar mistake (I'm still beaming). 

Chapter four made it to the page today.  Not bad since I just started it two weeks ago.  I know there will be some editing, and I'm still searching for zany things my heroine can do to run off her soon to be ex-husband...but they will come to me.  They always do.  However, if you have anything you want to share, I'm open to ideas.
