What's Happening

I recommend a book of wisdom for all ages: The Boy, the mole, the fox and the Horse, by Charlie Mackesy. Charlie Mackesy
I haven't been here much recently. Getting the kids to the UK in August was (and continues to be) more traumatic than we could have imagined. Since they left I did manage to finish two manuscripts, now being beta read before copy-editing. Now having a break while I worry about the kids and decide whether it's necessary to do some sort of suicide prevent visit (not joking - it really is that bad with one) Bloody kids!
Back To School! Lots of masks and social distancing and taking up all of my headspace, so no room for writing. Won't be long, though :)
