What authors talk about when they meet
I don’t often get the opportunity to meet fellow authors face to face, so when I found out that my ‘virtual’ friend, author and fellow writeworder Anne Brooke was holidaying in Buxton I jumped at the chance to meet for a chat with her and her husband over a pot of tea. And that’s what I did this morning. I made the drive in about 40 minutes and spent the best part of two hours gassing. And it was great. We talked about writing and books (of course) a little, and also about other things that had nothing to do with writing. I often forget that us writers are capable of that. Other topics of conversation included: supermarkets, car parks, supermarket car parks, Kent, bull finches, golden eagles, zebra crossings, the Lake District, Pachebel, cameras, Dr Who, Torchwood, Myspace, and lots more. I had a really enjoyable morning, thanks Anne and husband.
The rest of the day’s just flown. I’ve been stuck in my office writing all afternoon which has been great. I think I’m getting somewhere. Touch wood. I also managed to record a reading from my book which should be up here soon.
And on a final note…
