But, of all the things I’ve been doing, I think the most exciting was a short trip to London last week to attend the HarperCollins party. And it was fun. And posh. There was Champagne and cocktails and ladies in frocks and the coolest cakes in the world. I even wore a jacket. I met some brilliant and inspirational people and, to be honest, it was just what I needed. I think, as writers, even though we’re writers, we don’t often get the chance to feel like writers. I mean, most of my days are spent in front of my Mac either editing or struggling, so it was a fine thing to be able to celebrate being a writer, who has a wonderful publisher, and books out there. It also reminded me that I’m very lucky to be able to do this for a job.
It was also really cool to hear, this morning, that I was awarded BEST EDITOR at the Ether Books ceremony last night. I couldn’t be there, sadly, but a great big thanks to them for it, and a huge thanks to everyone who’s used my editing services - it’s brilliant to know I’m helping.
And now, I go back to struggling!
