Watched my little 9 year old granddaughter Daisy doing her bit at a competition organised by the Rotary Club here in Tavistock.  Three children in each team from many schools in the area debating a huge variety of topics – Daisy was talking about immigration of all things.  She stood there and clearly and confidently spoke out without notes in front of about 100 people. My  heart was in my mouth willing her not to forget what she was saying. She didn’t, bless her. Beginning to wind up the new story now, pulling all the loose threads together. I will have to go through it all again to make a few adjustments to earlier chapters. Hope I’m doing the right thing for all my characters giving them the satisfactory conclusion they deserve.
