  • It's 3am and I wish it wasn't, but lumps of the story I have to write by the end of the week started appearing fully-formed in my head #
  • 5am – time to stop. Got three paragraphs down and some outline notes. Huge step forward, had to grab the moment, dog tired now! #
  • Oof. Feel bloody rough. This is not a sustainable work pattern! #
  • Have just finished skimreading & making notes on a 586-page collection of chick lit stories. Feel like my brain is melting. Must buy shoes. #
  • RT @ElrikMerlin RT @Psythor: David Cameron calls Twitterers twats. I'd rather be a twat than a Tory. [Me too…] #
  • Press accreditation has arrived for Superleague Formula @ Donington Park this weekend, hurrah. Wasn't sure we were going to get that. Vroom! #

  • Approaching crunch time in the short story: 1000 of the 6000 words written, deadline tomorrow. Not good… #

  • Swine flu: an architect writes, taking the long view: #
  • Sitting in the media centre at Donington Park bashing out race reports. #
