Honey I'm home.

Hello everyone, as you can see I am back from my techno-less sabbatical and here is where I spent it.
For anyone that doesn't recognise this place it is the main square in Krakow Old Town and the building is The Cloth Hall. We spent a wonderful 5 days there and I can heartily recommend it as somewhere to visit.
But I'm back now and the reality of normal life is kicking back in. For instance, it is back to work tomorrow so ya boo hiss and all that but as I keep telling Himself if life was spent on holiday all the time then these times would not be special anymore. I really don't want to go back to work tomorrow at the moment but I'm sure that by this afternoon or this evening at the worst my head will have got itself back into the right place.
So I know that you will have spent all week worrying about what decisions I will make regarding the direction my writing will take so I will put you out of your misery. Just kidding BTW.
Well, remember BTL and how several of the agents that I had sent it to said that they did not like G but I love him so I don't want to get rid of him? Well, I have decided that I need to make G more appealing so I am going to revisit that project with that intention in mind. I have also had a couple of ideas for new projects - both of them non fiction. When (many years ago) I realised that I wanted to write I wanted to be a journalist so maybe non fiction has always been my first love so why fight it. Back then I also had a couple of attempts at writing a book so I am pretty much doing now what I started out doing. Anyway, I'm going to start working on the NF ideas later today - getting a plan sketched out at least.

Your new font is great and it finishes off your new look blog too.
So glad to hear you are buzzing with ideas. I'm rewriting my first novel again and this time I feel it is tell the story I wanted it too.
Good luck with your writing projects

I think you're right to stick with the characters you love, otherwise it feels like literary murder! Glad you enjoyed Krakow. I've heard it's wonderful.

Paula - I am much happier with this font - good luck with the re-write.
Frances - it would be like killing the family dog getting rid of George. Krakow is amazing.
