I’m loving that, for once, my New Year’s resolution to read more is going well. Only a few days after the middle of January and I might not have read one book but I have read the equivalent of one book. I’m loving dovetailing Joanne Harris’ Runemarks with Diana Wynne Jones’ Reflections, and I love that at the same time I’m writing again.

I’m probably tempting fate saying this but I’m hoping that this might be the beginning of getting the balance right for the first time in along time. If I have, then bizarrely it might be the new acquisition of my Kindle Fire that I have to thank for getting me away from the lure of the laptop.
