What’s new? The painting I’ve used for my graphic for one thing. I finished it today and thoroughly enjoyed producing it. I based it on one of the series of photographs I took on a recent visit to Blair Castle. I was with my wife for a short break in Pitlochry in the Scottish Highlands.
On the castle grounds are a network of paths, some leading from the main path up to a beautiful walled garden. Crossing the bridge takes the visitor to the impressive garden.
Apart from that, I’ve had another minor writing success. A few days ago I got my copy of Writers’ Forum delivered and right there on the Writers’ Circle (readers’ letters) pages is my letter about reading a ‘chick lit’ author’s book. I was raving about ‘Want To Know A Secret?‘ by Sue Moorcroft, which after reading recently, I wrote a review here. Having that letter published got me another Moleskine notebook, so it can go with my other two. They’re too expensive to buy … don’t ask me how I know.
Early in July I had a readers’ letter published in Writing Magazine. That one was to extol the virtues of Wunderlist, the task/project management program. It’s a FREE download so check it out on my Blogroll. You don’t have to be a writer to use it because it’s a useful program for anyone who likes to keep track of what’s going on in life without resorting to a diary on their phone.
I’ve now progressed to Chapter 6 of ‘Ten Days’, my romantic novel. This is the second draft which has seen a change of viewpoint from omniscient to third person. As I’ve said previously, I’ll soon be posting a jacket blurb to let folk know what it’s all about … apart from being romantic fiction set in Central America. There’s always more to life than love. Isn’t there?
