It feels good to be at this point - the part where I feel I can breathe again. I will now walk away from the novel for a few weeks then come back and try to make sense of it and knock it into a shape good enough to show my agent. I tried to get a spot in Annaghmakerrig to go over it but they are full. Sigh. Does anyone know of a place I could retreat to for a few days in June (not too expensive and in Ireland, north or south) to work on this?

Zoë Strachan will be chairing my event at the festival and I am reading her latest novel Ever Fallen in Love in advance - it is set north of Ullapool, coincidentally, and I am very much enjoying it. In another coincidence, it is published by Sandstone Press who will publish the UK version of Miss Emily in August. It's all good.
