I spent the day away from my desk today. Mistake? Big mistake. My head was on a completely different planet. I kept getting plot twist ideas (in the bank and WHSmiths) and my characters were yelling snappy dialogue at each other in my head (in Sainsbury's) which was very off-putting. So, I came home with a bag full of scraps of paper with illegible scribbles all over them (Tsk!) and a feeling that my behaviour may have been viewed by fellow shoppers as a bit loopy. Am I the local weirdo... or just a writer?!
