I’m back!

Since my last post I’ve been to the circus (this one – highly recommended), been ‘down south’ to visit my in-laws and play catch-up with lots of friends (also highly recommended – thanks again, all!), but mainly I’ve been working very hard to finish the new book.

The deadline was yesterday and I just made it… It’s far more ‘first drafty’ than I would like (and I really hope my editor isn’t too horrified), but I’d definitely hit the wall…. You know that point when your brain is scooped out and if you keep writing you’ll end up with ‘all work and no play’ repeated over and over again a la The Shining?

Still, now I can let the book ‘rest’ before the real work (rewriting) begins…

I’m still brain-fried today, so in lieu of my usual words of wisdom (ha!), please rest your eyes on this picture from our family holiday on the west coast of Scotland. This was on a beautiful day during the UK’s much-discussed heatwave. Just look at the crowds…

    So happy you are back!! First drafts can always be a bit rough (and most of the time quite ugly) but it’s an accomplishment! 🙂
