I think that’s the longest I’ve ever gone without blogging…
So I finished the rewrite on Saturday and spent the rest of the day feeling like I had a hangover. Is a writing hangover a real thing? I think I’ve heard other authors mention it.

This Marie Claire South Africa cover made me do a double-take. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a semi-naked man with a handlebar moustache on the cover of a British women’s magazine…
I spent a happy half hour with the Go Fug Yourself Best and Worst Oscar frocks. Not sure which was my fave – I thought Felicity Jones, Vanessa Hudgins and Octavia Spencer looked fabulous – but my worst was Maria Sharapova, no question (although Mena Suvari came close).
My amazing writer friend Zoe Marriott’s Dear Teen Me blog post made me cry. She’s so brave and inspirational.
