Writing Places

I have been shut away, researching and writing, always my favourite part, often wearing my dressing gown or oldest track suit and hoping that there won’t be a knock on the door before 11.00 a.m. . . . delicious.

The days where my hand won’t move fast enough are now gone for this particular book, the drafts have been done and it’s flying off for the very first edit, always a scary but good feeling.

I’ve added words in the garden


deleted words sitting on the steps

scratched my head at my good desk


and at my work desk


consulted my precious collection of special picture books by special friends and authors


and as always, I’ve taken my story for a walk, reading it out loud without falling over (a small miracle.)

  1. Alison Reynolds Cannot wait to see what you have created. And a mighty impressive feat walking and reading without incidents. x

    • corinne Ha, thanks Alison. We will see. It's been a long project but nothing will ever be as long as Tertius . . . I hope. Probably very foolish about the walking while reading but it's something I have to do, I always see things more clearly. Thanks again.
