The long awaited Indian summer is here at last after a dreary few weeks. After work, I spent a lovely hour typing under a tree in the park. I’m currently working on a new novel draft. My debut novel is well and truly finished now and soon to be released into the world; last weekend I went through the manuscript one last time after it came back from the typesetters and my publisher said the next step is that it’ll be heading for the printer. Exciting days! In the meantime, it’s business as usual and for me, that’s onto another writing project. 


The great thing about typing a novel on a tablet with a wireless keyboard is the portability. It’s even more lightweight than my old laptop and so handy. Nothing better than writing outdoors to help your imagination. Ah!
