The scent of baking...
Very clear head today. Unusual for me. Usually there's ideas and stories jumping up and down yelling for my attention. Perhaps my head is clear because I spent 3 hours solid yesterday writing down all my ideas for the next novel. It is still weird to have a quiet head but I'm enjoying it. Today I'm focusing on being domestic. I am baking lots of food today: - 3 sets of bread rolls, two apple and blackberry crumbles and a fruit cake for my dad's birthday at the weekend. The house smells divine! As soon as I start cleaning I expect the ideas will start off again. Story writing and being domesticated don't sit easily together. Haven't heard back from any of the agents I wrote to last week. But most of them will take 6-8 weeks to respond so I think maybe I'm being a bit impatient.
