Setting out on the First Matthew

I have this week been cracking on with The Four Matthews, my fourth novel, which plots the progress of a group of disparate individuals on a walking holiday across the rural Midlands (that sounds terribly grand, eh?).

At the risk of appearing pretentious, I do feel as though I am starting out on a journey with them.  As a writer, these fictional people become like friends to me.  I am finding I can’t wait to get home, switch the computer on and start to create scenes and background and conflict in which to throw them.

Writing can be as rewarding as it is frustrating at times.
