I am off here for the next week:

My MA class has a residential writing retreat, with morning workshops, afternoon writing time and evening readings. Four or five days to focus on my writing generally and my MA novel specifically. Wonderful. After a week or two of no progress (due to polishing short fiction competition entries and a family holiday last week) this is just what the tutor ordered. When I get back be ready to see my MA novel progress bar rocket to the right (hopefully). There’s not internet at the Hurst so it will be a bit quiet around here for a week or so. I had planned to write a couple of posts to schedule for while away but those of you with kids on holiday will know how that worked out.

I’m off to pack a bag. See you in a week.
