TIME OUT FOR GOOD BEHAVIOUR
Like most writers I always have a notebook and pen(s) to hand. I think writing, I talk writing, I do writing. I've been known to write in a hospital restaurant while my husband was under anaesthetic, and in a queue in the supermarket (it was a very long queue!). Hardly a day goes by when I don't write something, be it to add words to the work-in-progress, to edit same, or to write a short story, or at least start one. Then there are blogs to write and social networking for a bit of book promotion. Am I bigging myself up enough here? Does the lady protest too much? Because I've decided to take a little time out for good behaviour now that summer seems to have arrived at long, long, last. Due to family circumstances I (and my husband) am having my grandchildren (5 and 9) to stay on a regular basis. They will soon be breaking up from school for the summer holidays. I cannot bring myself to shut myself away in my writing garret when they are with us. So, I have decided there is going to be time to blow dandelion clocks.
