Writing suddenly got hard again.

There’s a lots of other work to do as well:

• Christmas hats to be finished
• year end books to be bought (up to budget) for the library and paperwork to complete
• events I’m committed to attending
• grotto signs to remake (This job feels like groundhog day: the first year I forgot to bring it home; the second year I remembered but it’s not looking so hot with bits of lettering peeling off – so yes, time to make it again.)
• several appointments which I put off until the start of Dec hoping that would be post finished draft…

Even Starbucks’ magic is waning. Still, I’ve found a rather lovely new place to work. Isn’t this beautiful?

This is Thailand Cultural and Design Centre. It’s a gallery space and design library at the top of Emporium Mall which is very close to home. It cost me £22 to join for a year.

I'm so close to finishing this draft and there are no excuses with this lovely space to do it in.

What a lovely place, JJ ... keep on going! :-)

£22 a year is so reasonable for such a great place to write in.

Keep going JJ, you can do it.

That does look fantastic! It should hopefully help you keep at it even with the December madness.

It looks a great place to be creative in, JJ.

Thank you all soooo much for your words of encouragement. This 'nearly there' seems to be going on forever... but I am nearly there, honest.
