Actually that's not quite fair! The writing just feels
a bit like a trudge. So what am I doing? I'm working through a long manuscript, but the revision seems to go so slowly
. Every single word or phrase needs thinking about, every scene has to be checked to see if it makes sense. In some ways it's a pleasure to be able to refine the story, and deal with any errors. On the other hand, I'm trying to get the thing finished as soon as possible. Oh grrrrrrr!
On the other hand, have had some nice times lately. Not only did I have an excellent few days in Denbighshire
(Hello to you all!) and fun telling "Strange Stories" at RHS Harlow Carr,
and organised a "Drumming for Dragons" event for our local Children's Book Group (Thank you, Drums Agogo!
) but tomorrow I'm off to meet everyone at SELBY ABBEY
So must stop trudging over the words, start checking the route (no satnav here) and packing my books - and getting an early night too!
