A Writing Holiday

I'm just back from the Writers' Holiday at Caerleon in Wales, and I had a great time.

I was told to expect one of the friendliest events I'd ever known, and such it very much was. Everyone made me feel incredibly welcome. I'd like to say a big thank you to the organisers, Gerry and Annie, and also to all who came along - in particular for laughing at all the right places in my talk!

It was a superb event, a wonderful setting, warming people, and we even managed to learn a thing or two - myself included.  If anyone is an aspiring writer, and is interested in going next year, I'd thorougly recommend it.

And as for the Cwmbach male choir, the music was delightful!  What a memorable night.

So then, it's now back to work.  I'm on the edits of the fifth tvdetective book, The Balance of Guilt, which are ticking along fine.  It's never my favourite part of the writing process, as the fun of the actual book, the characters, the plot and all is done and this is the checking of the details of spelling, punctuation etc., but it has to be done.  I did warn you it wasn't all fun, being a writer!

Off to Topsham tomorrow for the Exeter Book Fair, a very fine event, which it's my pleasure to support.  If you're interested in popping along, there are more details on the News and Events page - www.thetvdetective.com/news.html

Back to the editing now... and I think I've found an erroneous apostrophe - sounds painful!
