Onwards and upwards. The next step in my journey as a writer - the blog. Inspired by my visit to the London Book Fair where I spoke to Kate Mosse, author of Labyrinth who mentioned her blog and its uses. My thanks to her for taking the time to answer my question on structure. Missed out on Gordon Brown being interviewed by Sebastian Faulks though. Cried all the way home.
