This blog is called I Should Be Writing and I am. Guess what I am doing. Two things at once. I’m writing and time-travelling, stepping back in time and writing about our adventures when we went around the coastline of Britain in our motorhome. I made lots of notes back then and am enjoying doing the trip all over again but this time from my desk. And when I’m not time-travelling? I'm also critiquing a book for a student, planning another book which I shall sensibly try to sell as a series of articles first (short stuff pays better) and writing up a couple of interviews.
Today I need to plan my talk for the Gloucestershire meeting of the Society of Authors. Leaving everything until the last minute again, like a true writer. The meeting is tomorrow.
I don’t often blog about writing because when a subject crops up the realisation dawns that I could use it for my Novel Ideas column in Writing Magazine (and get paid).
I’m busy and loving it.
