Eleven days into the new year, and I’ve just about managed to stick to my resolutions. How are you doing?
This month, I’m working on a non-fiction project that’s very close to my heart. I’m lucky enough to have lived in the countryside nearly all my life, but most people these days live in towns. The disconnect between living and working peacefully at our own pace and the frantic pace of city life is at the heart of a lot of the world’s problems. The working title of my current Work In Progress, Country Into Town, gives you an idea what it’s about. It’s a year’s worth of small, stress-busting changes anyone can make to their busy life. I’ve already written a short magazine article called A Countryside Christmas, ready for publication in December this year. How’s that for forward planning?
Today (11th January) I’m blogging for Rachel Brimble, and on 14th January, I’ll be blogging for authorsoundrelations in my usual monthly spot.
