Castaway in Cornwall

I'm off to a writer's retreat in April. The cottage is as remote as you can get - stuck on a promintory on Cape Cornwall. There I shall have time alone to write, contemplate, do some yoga, and walk. I shall be recording the ups and downs of what it's like to be a stranded writer and hopefully get my second novel plotted in full.
