Since the last blog (the one where the writing did show), I have worked hard on creating the first two workshops in the summer holiday series. Discovering unique activities and traits about the local holiday camps has been fun, and I know my workshop attendees are going to love the sessions. From the planning about the 1950s, I went right back to 1287 when I held the last in the 'turbulant thirteeth century' workshop last Wednesday. It was a great session with plenty of debate and, as always, some fabulous writing.
My writing is moving along slowly but I am really happy with the novel. The last scenes have concentrated on Harry in Dymchurch, but Phoebe is now on her way home after being in Wissant. I came up with a plan for an extra twist which pleased me. Now I am 3/4 of the way through, I need to consider the ending and start building up to it. There is one method of novel writing where you start writing the end and work backwards to the beginning. I can't say I understand this!
On Easter Sunday I sold books at a craft fair in Hamstreet. This was a new venue for me and a great location in a village hall next to a green and play park. Some of my regular readers came along to say hello which was wonderful, and I am getting to know the other stallholders as we meet at different events throughout the year. I am very lucky - people think that being an author is a solitary life, but not for me!
