Wot I loved today: Writing river

 Follow Lucy Robinson on Twitter

It doesn’t happen often to me, but at the moment it is: my fourth novel is flowing like a great big river. Not one of those crappy rivers that moves fast but is full of shopping trolleys and dead Alsatians but a big clean river, straight from a nice-looking mountain where no animals stop for a poo. I am writing a good three thousand words per day which is quite a lot, given that my absolute limit for writing is three hours per day. And when I review the words, they’re GOOD.

Snozzcumbers and lunar craters

Sorry for the silence, friends. As you may have noticed the blogs section has gone all posh and I got a bit scared of trying to upload a new one. Wazzock. So, since my last, somewhat doom-filled blog (which appears to have disappeared, so you can find it here for the time being, and the one before it here) I have managed to pick myself up slightly.
