Progress is slow
As predicted, writing articles slowed down work on the novel this week. In the end I compromised and did one of the two articles and a bit of work on the novel, which was an early scene in one of the main venues that the action takes place. Being a venue that I will be using many times throughout the book I decided to give only a brief description of the place, I will add bits to this as they become relevant. I think this is preferable to describing it in detail all in one go, as most people will both find this a bit boring (I know I do when I come across lengthy descriptions of either how people or places look) and wont remember it for the next time it appears anyway.
On a completely different topic, I came across this video of a bookshop I frequent quite a bit – it is simply the best bookshop I’ve ever been in anywhere in the world; and I live close enough to go there whenever I like – how cool is that!
