One of the workshop presenters is Shirley Blair from The People's Friend and I'm not surprised she has been invited back after her massively over-subscribed workshops last year. I'm sure the numbers will be more controlled this time. I'm looking forward to the story structure workshops with Alexandra Sokoloff as they sound very interesting. I'm even more looking forward to a break from domesticity over the weekend and I'm sure husband will enjoy a weekend on his own.
Talking of inspiration, I'm featured on Victoria Howard's blog today, outlining how The Highland Lass was partly inspired by its Scottish setting. Is setting important to you as a reader or writer?
