πŸ“š Welcome, May! πŸ“š

Hey there!

Happy May! In one month today, I touch down in the UK for two months. While I'm there, I will be traveling with family and also continuing the project I started last summer – to clear a family member's house of no longer wanted items. I'm looking forward to it.

The month of May will be about cracking on with the latest Inspector Graham before I take a break from it, and preparing for my trip.

Things I learned this week

In the early stages of writing a new book, I'm doing a lot of research. It doesn't always bear much fruit – a lot ends up on the cutting floor, as it were. And I'll sometimes spend an hour learning about something only to change one word. But so it goes. Other times, my research will take the book in a whole new direction or form the basis of the entire story.

It's all grist for the mill and I love learning new things. This week I spent time learning:

  • How to cut a concrete block.
  • How to dig up a swimming pool.
  • About the site (a car park) and archaelogical dig at the burial spot of King Richard III.
  • Body decomposition under airtight conditions. (That was a bit unpleasant, to be honest.)

Latest jigsaw

I included the picture on the box because of the glare on the jigsaw photo and I really wanted you to appreciate how difficult this puzzle was! Rocks and water and trees and sky. Hard. πŸ˜‚

Back to imaginary Jersey for me. I'll see you next Thursday. Have a lovely week. There are blossoms and flowers bursting with colour and fragrance here. I hope they are where you are. Don't forget to download your starter library.

Happy reading!
