The trouble with the end in sight (dissertation deadline) is that all manner of things go out of the window. Whilst I apply myself to draft versions, rewrites, final edits, the housework is a complete joke, normal conversation is pointless as I can only think about what I'm writing and apart from libraries and edit suites I have no idea about the rest of the world. So, it was with some relief that I was pulled out of my insular existence to give a talk at the University of the Arts, London to students with editors of Idol Magazine and the on line artist blogging community Artists talking on the an website.
The fresh air and the outing blew some cobwebs from my head and apart from a brief pop into the LCF library for a Bond book I relaxed and actually took the day off yesterday to indulge in some Halloween fun.
This week I must start afresh and 'nail' the last four thousands or so words!
