Catching up

I thought I'd got got all organised before I went away with my laptop, notebook, magazines and competition details, but wherever I am there always seem to be distractions preventing me doing as much as I intend.

If you can avoid getting distracted by a few more pictures from our latest trip, you'll find links to things I'd meant to tell you about, but didn't get around to mentioning.

There was (and still is) the chance to win Jack Reacher audio books.



If you can instantly write an amazing book blurb you could win a writing course (but if you can do that you probably don't need the prize!)

There's just slightly more notice for this poetry competition - which has a £500 prize.

Oh look, I've just left room to brag about the lovely reviews I've had for my book!

  7. Loving the photos Patsy, hope when you're back you will share the locations and if they're all part of your next cunning plan....

  8. Tracy, see my answer to Pat for the locations.

    This wasn't a deliberate research trip, but we saw such inspiring places I won't be suprised if one or two end up in my writing.

  17. I hadn't heard of Jack Reacher until I saw the Tom Cruise preview; think it'll be any good? Anyhow, way to go on meeting and beating your September W1S1 goals!

  18. I love Jack Reacher!! Not sure about Cruise as the 6 foot 4 man mountain though. Like getting a thimble to stand in for an egg cup.

    Lovely pics by the way!
