Fallen out of love

This last month I've put the novel on hold what with family and planning the Sherborne Arts Link course I'm running. So I'd mentally jammed it in an old suitcase and stuffed it in the brain loft. Now I can get back to it means getting the dusty suitcase down and reconnecting with the characters - Annika I've lived with for so long that there are no problems there - but the others have faded somewhat. I need the storyboard in my mind to be refreshed and for me to fall back in love with it.
