Words complete! NaNoWriMo continued…

And then we came to the end... Of the book, that is, not NaNoWriMo. As with book 1 in this series, the end rushed up at me. I'd left my protagonist Maisie Frobisher in rather a sticky situation the day before, and I knew I needed some careful plotting to get her out of it …

On the road again: adventures in NaNoWriMo

I've been meaning to write this post for at least a week now, but life and more particularly events and book launches have got in the way. But now here I am, and having got my words for the day done, I have a bit of space to talk about NaNoWriMo. Or NaNoDicto, as it's become …

Words complete!

The first draft of the first Maisie Frobisher book (now provisionally titled All At Sea) has marched to its conclusion! Literally, as I've been dictating it on walks. I had planned to finish the book today, but as it turned out the book had other ideas, and demanded to be finished on Friday. It drove …

Adventures in knitting…new book progress!

A couple of blog posts ago I mentioned that I'd started a new book, and that I was dictating it (here is the blog if you missed it). Things are moving on apace. Most days I've been going out for a walk, with the chapter outline in my head and phone in hand. Usually I …

A squirrel, a notebook, and a new series!

Some time ago I was in Paperchase, which had a sale on, and I bought myself a lovely notebook. Here it is. A4, hardback, with a magnetic closing flap, a ribbon, and an inside pocket for documents. I mean, I couldn't LEAVE it there. And it was only £4 in the sale. Like many writers, …

Caster & Fleet: not goodbye, but au revoir

This morning I wrote a chapter. A last chapter. Not of a book (well OK yes, it was of a book), but a series. And given the title of this post, you can probably guess which one. Oh gosh, it was hard. Starting it was bad enough. How do you write a chapter to finish …

Danger: Co-writers at work!

Or rather, we have been! It seems to have happened in the blink of an eye, but Paula Harmon and I have written another book together. Caster & Fleet 5, to be precise. Book 4, The Case of the Masquerade Mob, felt like a BIG book. Lots of characters and things going on, often unexpected; we were …
