Talking of biting ... a daytrip to Manchester to meet up with Madelynne Ellis and Charlotte Stein turned out to be very useful as far as Red Grow the Roses goes (as well as packed with food, drink, gossip and useful advice**). Sitting on the train I managed to sort out a number of things for the plot, which is stalking toward a conclusion.
I'm very enthusiastic about Chapter 14, which I'm currently writing. I've had to set Chapter 13 aside for the moment: it's just too dark. I can't handle dark right now. Chapter 14 isn't dark, it's just violent - which is different.
And when I got home I slept for 11 hours. Can't handle the urban lifestyle, clearly!
*Yes, I'm off travelling later in the year... I know, I know...
** They know everything. I refuse to go near the Romance blogs and thus live in glorious blissful ignorance.
