I have sent my book proposal off to a second publisher today, having had a rejection from Jessica Kingsley. It seems like there's a practical part of me which is determined to 'get on with it', even as the creative side wrangles on. Though I do feel more of an impetus to write and I am looking forward to some time this week when I can really get my head down.

Used to be I could come in from a full time job plus an hour's commute and write on a make-shift desk for a couple of hours before bed. I wrote four novels that way. But no longer. Get much past afternoon tea at three and I'm thinking it's too late on in the day to be writing. If I'm going to get this book completed, along with my counsellor accreditation done, I will have to work on that mind set.
