Long time, no post

It's been exactly a month since my last post - a month of heavy lifting, endless unpacking and stress. My new home on Bethnal Green Road is lovely, except it's way too small for all the books Tom and I own! The study is the only room not finished - that's where we've put all the boxes filled with stuff we don't know what to do with yet, or stuff we plan to eBay when we (eventually) get an internet connection. My desk is about the only uncluttered surface.

I'm now settled into a new routine and getting lots of work done. Since discovering it takes almost exactly the same amount of time to walk to work as it does to catch the bus, I now don't need to worry about missing the number 72 / getting stuck in traffic / having to recharge my Oyster Card. This has led to much less stressful mornings and a much calmer and more productive disposition.

The script writing is going really well, and I've penned quite a few journalism articles over the past couple of weeks. The novels have taken a bit of a back seat for now, mostly because I need to knuckle down and get something finished (if only to remind myself that I am capable of finishing something) and the script is the piece that has the best 'flow'. Once that's done, I'll be finishing Glass and Shadows & Ashes in no time! That's the plan, anyway...
