So, after six months of house renovation, everything has been retrieved from storage and I have a clear desk. Moving from a Hampshire village to a Surrey town brings mixed feelings. The convenience of shops, station and friends around the corner, versus the joy of swifts swooping over thatched rooftops and waves of poppies in a neighbour's field. If nothing else, this dilemma has inspired a novel. I already have a folder full of notes, scraps of newspaper cuttings and photos. Now I just need to work out where the story is going.
Hi, I'm Claire and welcome to my website. Most of my published writing has been magazine articles and corporate or non-profit communications. But now it's time to get on with my novel! This blog isn't all about writing, but other 'stuff' that pops up when I'm trying to write.
