136 days to go: Brainwave


I could barely keep my eyes open as I crawled home at 11pm and hit the sack.
I work better in the morning so set my alarm for very early.
But as I woke I had a brainwave - Jenn.
As I've mentioned several times Jenn is the prison librarian as well as being a writer.
Her first novel - A Kind of Intimacy - is just out and she has been doing several readings.
I asked Jenn if she wouldn't mind repeating the process for my class.
Luckily she agreed and all went well.
Jenn read a few extracts before taking questions and after a coffee break she set a writing task based on the novel's unreliable narrator.
Phew!
I got a text from Neil today who still can't speak and he has promised to come in very soon.

I wore...
Boots - Clarks
Tights - Marks and Spencer
Dress - New Look
Cardigan - Gap
Necklace - Top Sjop

You are clever! Isn't it amazing when we relax our brains come up with the solutions we need!
