Back on Track
Goat track: Autumn in Western Australia and time to introduce the bucks to the does. Necessary but noisy!
Writing track: Not on track – the writing will not flow – too many distractions and the mind doen't want to work in a disciplined manner.
Holiday track: YES!!
Been busy organising a holiday to UK and Europe, travelling initially with my son.
The mind is working overtime here!
I recently discovered my brother, who lives in the south of England, not only has part share in a yacht but also an aircraft.
He has offered to take us sailing for a couple of days out of Portsmouth.
Because I love tall ships, I am looking forward to seeing Nelson’s “Victory”, and the “Mary Rose” if possible.
If we take a flight it will be over the Isle of White and Portsmouth Harbour – UNREAL!
Because I love also ocean cruising , I have been tempted by a cruise in the Mediterranean.
Ten days sailing out of Rome to Naples, Greek Islands, Sicily and South of France and Florence.
I’m just in the process of working out the best way to get there.
When I am in the UK, I hope to visit Hale Books who published SEA DUST and to meet the agent who secured that contract and the contract for my second novel, THE TWISTING VINE. I could not have managed to get where I am without him.
You can read a progress report on where the publishing process for the book is at at the moment at: http://squidoo.com/thetwistingvine
