birds-705043_1280My woods are foggy today, and a family of crows has taken to hanging around cawing just opposite my flat. It’s very atmospheric, especially when you consider the collective term – a murder of crows… I wonder what they’re plotting?
This week, I’m on Marni Graff’s blog, talking about book locations – thank you Marni for inviting me! (Marni will be here next month talking about New York.)

11NUS29.10.15Book news: Highlight of last week was a number 11 position on Amazon US for The Attic Room. It’s the Noir category, so I was really pleased with that.

November is National Novel Writing Month. I’m not doing it officially, but I’m going to get my head down and see if I can get my 50,000 words done. I did this last year too and the result should be published next spring – more news about that soon.

And as 50,000 is a lot of words to write in 31 days, I’m going to get started!

  1. I’ve always loved that crows are called “murder.” Supposedly they are very, very smart. Who knows what they’re plotting in their little heads, eh? Good luck on the not-doing-NaNoWriMo-but-still-writing month. I’ll think of you as I’m slumped over my computer in an exhausted stupor.

      It’s a lot of words… I’m 12K into mine which is why I’m not doing it officially. Good luck with yours too!
      The crows are amazing. They gather at dusk and caw around for a while, and sometimes they’re here at different times, too. Long may they stay…

    Very envious of your no-NaNo Linda – I am desperate to start writing again but being very disciplined in trying to get other stuff in order first, otherwise I shall end up in even more of a pickle than I am in anyway. Good luck with it and congratulations on your number 11 spot – I’m so looking forward to getting to The Attic Room 🙂

      Thanks – and you’re right, it’s best to have as little else going on as possible when you’re writing. Not so easy as we both know! I’m aiming at a first draft finished by the end of the year, so we’ll see if I make it. Hope you get started soon! 🙂
