One of the most magical moments in writing is when - suddenly! - a setting and its scene and even a new character appear in your mind, and not only does this solve certain plot problems, but it becomes far more exciting than anything you've droned on about in your synopsis. Maybe, just maybe, this story will work. Fingers still crossed. Okay, back to plodding on!
By the way, greetings to everyone at ST.THERESA'S CATHOLIC PRIMARY SCHOOL, SHEFFIELD. Looking forward to seeing you on Thursday!
