On the up

Around 500 words written on the novel today, as well as another short piece. I'm not sure about the quality of those words, I suspect that when I go back to edit them, I will find that I have done far too much telling and not enough showing so will have to flesh it all out and change the balance. But at least I wrote something, which I needed to do and it is always easier to stay in and work when the weather is grotty.

I'm in a crime and thriller mood at the moment, both in books and TV viewing. I think that this is probably the genre I enjoy best for entertainment. Watching 'Lewis' on TV last night reminded me that there are possibly still some books in Colin Dexter's Inspector Morse series that I haven't read. In fact there are also a number of other writers whose series I used to follow but haven't read recently, so plenty to catch up on one day.

Well done on the writing! And Lewis was great, I thought! I really love it - I hope they do more. The 2 MCs are just ace.
