I haven't quite finished the novel yet - friends, Christmas and New Year happened scuppering my plans somewhat! However I am upto 47,000 words and I think I have about another 7,000 to write before the first draft is complete.
I've also been re-inspired to attempt short stories again after reading my siter's brilliant published short story "Trouble at t'Abbey" which can be found here - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Whitby-Abbey-Inspiration-Anthology-Stories/dp/1907294783.
All stories were inspired by Whitby Abbey. I adore Whitby, it has many happy memories for me. my favourite being a week spent with Suzy on a self imposed writing retreat.
Anyway, back to the writing!
