Another good day today. Had a successful batch at improving chapter three of my novel, before heading into Oxford this afternoon for a play-meeting with Jane and Melissa. I say meeting, but in fact it was a Christmassy gathering with mulled wine and cookies during which we did the first full read through of the whole play.

And it’s good! Actually, it’s damn good. It’s a true something-about-nothing farce with a bit of murder and intrigue and is quintessentially English (complete with knowing nods to the Wisden’s Cricketers Almanac). With two Dell Inspiron laptops and and an iMac, the scene was something of a technological version of the Oxford Inklings… 😉
