The difficulties of writing a new novel:-

Trying to avoid stories about wizards, dragons and ghosts.

The weather – it’s windy outside and I can’t concentrate. Now, what shall I call this wizard? Harry? Oh dear. DELETE. And the dragon.

What’s in the newspaper today? Ooh, a crossword. Excellent.

Another cup of tea.

I seem to be rewriting the plot of Merlin.

Why do all the characters in the TV show look like a boy band circa 1995?

I’m sure Arthur would have a beard.


Cake to go with the tea.

And a biscuit.

Perhaps my new story needs a ghost. A ghost dragon!

It’s lunchtime already.

Busy, busy.
