I've had a really productive weekend. Yesterday I did the parkrun with my friend Camilla; I've done lots of reading and film watching; I made some excellent breakfast burritos today AND yesterday; today, I've done a ton of work on my manuscript.
Now, I am feeling pleased with myself and a shepherds pie is being made for me.
One thing I have also done a lot of is look at Rookie. I expect you know all about Rookie and Tavi and all the rest of it, but if you don't then I implore you to get yourself over there now. It's like the perfect balance between a girl-friendly glossy magazine like Bust and an actual scrapbooky fanzine from the mid-90s. Which is to say it speaks to me on all levels, basically.
And as my manuscript is a YA project, I can tell myself it's all for 'research' and part of the hard work.
