Pens, Paper and Preparation

Holiday preparation for an author? Packing notepads of various sizes and some pens is not enough. I have been busy working my way through reams of scribble for my current novel. I like writing in long hand first, but I can’t actually read my writing, hence the need to quickly transfer from microscrap paper and macrosoft brain to Microsoft Word. Then edit and put on several memory sticks in case a burglar steals my computer, or worse, the whole house blows up while we are away.

In the meantime there is work to do in the ether; refreshing my website so it looks as if I have visited it recently and am not dead, blogs to write…. just in case the various portable electronic gadgets we are taking with us do not connect to the internet. And where are we going? Find out in the next blog.
