A trip over to Barnstaple for coffee and cake with my writing friends to discuss our book – Mosaic – which is a compilation of short stories.  I enjoy the drive from West to North Devon through pretty countryside via several villages and the moor looked spectacular yesterday in the sunshine.  We threshed out the format for the book marvelling at the different way we each approach writing – there is no right way of doing it just your way.

Spent a glorious sunny day in Dartmouth but the highlight was a ferry trip up the river to visit Greenway, the holiday house of Agatha Christie and family. The sparkling estuary of the Dart is glimpsed through the trees from the house, the interior of which is firmly set in the 1950′s.  What a wonderful setting for a writer although I can understand if she was distracted by the views from almost every window.
