Here’s my latest writing retreat.
That’s because I’m a versatile blogger, it’s official, Jan Banham says so. Now I have to tell you seven things about me.- That’s my writing bench, so there’s one…
And this is the view from there, which I love, that’s number two.
And the castle gardens are looking great at this time of the year as well.
I finished my early morning job, and the sun was shining, so I had a few hours, before Alan finished his cover work for someone who was off.
Now where better could there be to find a bench, after having a cup of coffee and a cake, to write. This wonderful spot is between my work and his. Aren’t we lucky? The castle and the bandstand are to the left of the gardens.
I’m working on Redington 111 for Creative Frontiers. It’s coming on quite well, and I got lots done, with the sound of children’s laughter coming from the play park, and the peaceful ducks and swans gliding past were great to see as well. Not surprisingly, my characters are at at pub, with a wide river at the bottom of the garden, with swans gracefully gliding past.
Tamworth is in the line up for Britain in Bloom, and I’m sure they might win. Will keep you informed on that. Funny how you can be busy working, driving around, and not take time to find that bench, and have a few hours to relax.
Hope the new story goes down well with C.F. Editor. It’s called ‘Murder at Brook House Farm.’
With lots of help from my writing buddies, writecritical, it might be in shape on time for the deadline.
Here’s one more photo….
Oh, and one more.Where’s your outdoor writing retreat?
The fourth thing about me, is that I love going to the gym. That’s where you’ll find me on a Saturday morning, or the library.
Fifth item is that one of my favorite foods are peaches. Which reminds me, must look for some.
Number six, is that I love anything funny. I recently went to see someone regarding an article for a local magazine. I noticed that it was a barn type building, in a rural setting, lovely. All the doors were open, and as I tried with a bit of difficulty to get in the one that was open, I realised I’d gone through the window not the door. Made me feel like a female version of Johnny English. (Rowan Atkinson) To make it worse, I made a big fuss saying, ‘oh, did I come through the window, not the door?’
Number seven is that I like music, and sing as often as I can. Here’s one I love, and especially the reggae version.
If any of my lovely followers, and welcome to the new ones, want the versatile award, please take it. I don’t like passing them on. It’s summer time. Too much to do, like listen to the above:))
