Gone wandering

It’s been a helluva year, what with the whole Book Festival shenanigans, more publishing credits, scurrying to literary events and generally running my brain down a bit too much. So, I decided a last-minute holiday was in order. And that’s why I’m buggering off to Barcelona tomorrow for a long weekend.

Yes, you’ve kind of guessed the incoming earworm.

 

 

I’m not doing any NaNoWriMo while I’m away, but I will take my trusty notebook and my phone if staring at the Sagrada Familia inspires me. I’ll also be attempting to get by in a place that mostly speaks Catalan, where I’m armed only with the Latin American Spanish I used last autumn in Peru, having not used Peninsular Spanish for a decade. Ah well, I have Duolingo. What could possibly go wrong?

 

Sure that'll be really useful, cheers.

Sure that’ll be really useful, cheers.

 

Whatever happens, I’ll be back early next week to make a sad last-ditch attempt on the NaNoWriMo rebel project, and see what short fiction I can come up with for the lovely folks at Shift Magazine, the wonderful Edinburgh spoken word event Interrobang (brought to you by one of the Story Shop team!), and The List’s Hot 100 entrants 404 Ink. Cor, there’s so much literary talent in my hometown right now, eh?

And that’s not all, kiddos. I’ve decided to try posting here a wee bit more, so I’m going to try ‘Blogmas’ next month: a post a day on, well, all manner of things. I’m taking some ideas from here initially, but any suggestions for things you’d like me to talk about are most welcome! And on that note, I should probably finish packing. Fins dilluns, amics! ❤

 

Me, for the next 3 days.
