It's the first Wednesday of the month, so time for another Insecure Writer's Support Group post. It's also nearly time for Gary and I to head off for another adventure in our campervan (which I think gives me an excuse to post a few pictures of the last one!)
As things are packed away, I'm likely to realise there are items I've forgotten and I may well have duplicate items, or stuff which won't be needed for that particular trip. Putting it right is similar to editing our story.
Once everything is in (which might require cutting down to just the essentials if I've written/packed too much) we have to ensure everything is 'secure for sea'. That's the phrase Gary uses to mean that nothing is going to fall or break during our travels – which often do include ferry crossings. The writing equivalent is double checking the address to send our work to, whether it needs to be in a particular format, making sure we've included everything we should and nothing we shouldn't.
Would you like to see pictures from the next trip?
