Average working day - nothing to write home about (as it were). Managed to get the Steering Group minutes done and dusted (goodness, I'm full of cliches tonight), but still have the agenda for next week's meeting to sort.
Still, a nice, chatty lunch with Julia from UniSWriters cheered me up, ready for an afternoon of catch-up with the website. And then the joy of Tesco shopping - but, hell, at least it's air-conditioned! It's so bloody hot everywhere else.
Lord H went up on the roof this evening to try to scare our resident wasps off again - hope it works this time, as I can't stand the stripy-jumpered beasts. There seem to be a lot of them about this year too, damn it.
Got a tip-off from fellow writer, Margaret Gill, about a new website which might be useful for small-time authors - http://www.independentauthors.co.uk - so have made contact with them to get "The Hit List" and "Pink Champagne and Apple Juice" up on their site. Will also send them a couple of copies of each, in case they make any sales (though most of the money, if any, comes to the author which is good). I'm a great believer in these independent enterprises - something has to knock the boring old mainstream publishers/bookshops off their pedestals one day soon.
Today's three nice things:
1. Margaret's tip-off re Independentauthors.co.uk
2. Lunch with Julia
3. A relatively early night - I hope - bliss!
