I've mentioned more than once on here how much I enjoy writing with pen and paper while out and about, usually while enjoying a coffee and cake in one cafe or another. I also love writing on trains which is fortunate as I now have a forty minute journey each way when I want to meet friends in Glasgow.
With a couple of recent Afternoon Tea outings for friends' birthdays and exploring different places to lunch with another close friend, I've been in the city roughly once a week since we moved. It's a great way for me to get on with the current novella I'm trying to finish. Somehow, the words flow better with pen and paper, or because I'm away from the desk.
The only problem now, is actually getting it typed onto the computer! I was supposed to be doing that this morning and have sorted out so many other things that it's now almost lunch time. However, at least the words are written down and I'm pretty sure it must be close to a thousand in my notebook - at least I'm hoping it's that far on. It's also a good way to do a first edit while typing the handwritten version.
We had a lovely walk in the drizzly rain at Cramond yesterday and it was all the more atmospheric for the dull day, as well as being quieter. Also discovered there is a cosy little village inn which looked most appealing - we'll time it better so we can have lunch there next time!
