Dog sitting – gorgeous golden labrador – so took a long walk on Dartmoor. I miss my previous old dog and it was good to have a reason to walk – I do still have a daily walk but I still feel a bit odd without a dog.  At one point on the moor there was nobody in sight and then we came across a few ponies – the little ones are a delight. Dog on lead then although she is very good and just ignores them.  For the writing it’s important to take note of the weather  because often it helps to set a scene, having a character making a dash for it through torrential rain or sweltering through a particularly hot day.  Things like that can affect your character’s mood.
