The Summer of 2015

Now the nights are drawing in, I’ve been reflecting on the summer.

It has had a few stresses, mostly about money, but overall it has been great. I’ve been to some great events, most recently a blues/rock concert by an up and coming singer/guitarist Joanna Shaw Taylor, a classical concert held in the beautiful surroundings of a rose garden and enjoyed the usual local festivities which happen every year.

My writing mojo has also kept me busy and I’m ploughing into finishing my first ‘proper’ novel, with gusto.

Reading books has been slow and steady during the summer. I’ve read a total of eight books and abandoned two. As I’m developing in my writing, I’m finding that I have become pickier with my reading taste. I don’t think that this is a bad thing though. As I’m getting older (I’m at the ripe old age of 34!), I’ve realised that life is too short to waste time on books that I’m not enjoying. That’s not to say that I won’t give a book a chance. Even if I’m not sure if I am going to like a book, I will still read about 100 pages before deciding whether to ditch it or not.

Over the next few days, I will try and catch up on blog posts I have missed and reviews I’d like to tell you about. For now, here are some photos of my summer:
