Spring’s on the way, and I already can feel the writer’s block shifting. For me, the winter months were grey and depressing. I struggled to throw off the lingering effects of the flu, caught two days before Christmas.
On Friday, I went to see the doctor. He prescribed a strong but simple gargle that got rid of my two-month sore throat in less than twelve hours.
Recently, I’ve enjoyed working on the novel, a psychological thriller. I’m concentrating on building up atmosphere and developing the various character relationships in the context of the home setting, a former factory in the north of England. There’s quite a few chilling moments too.
