I haven’t really written anything for the past two or three days, I’ve been last minute researching to make sure I get things right. I found a book on close personal protection, and I’m finding it very useful.  I think it’s important to do the reasearch before, during, and after writing. I wish I had someone to ask, but it’s not easy finding people to fire questions at unless you’re an established author. I could be wrong about that, and if I am please correct me. Usually when I start to ask questions and explain it’s for my latest novel, I get the look… you know the one I mean, the ‘everyone’s a writer’ type look. Please tell me it’s not just me!

Anyway, back to it. With any luck I’ll spend the weekend writing and have something interesting to say 🙂

Until next time

I'd love to hear from you.
