Spent a few days hiking along Hadrian’s Wall in England with my lovely agents. I bet no one told you one of the responsibilities of a literary agent was to guide their client across endless kilometres of roman wall, right? Just makes me glad I made sure that clause was in the contract as it was a wonderful time.
I’m also cycling solo along the Loire in France visiting various castles (in the writing world we call this “research”). The temperature is a fairly brutal 35 degrees Celsius and I’m actually surprised by just how hard it is to stay hydrated when you’re cycling for several hours even with drinking loads of water.
Anyway, lots of fun and interesting ideas coming up from all this!
