A good writing session this afternoon, sitting in the back seat of the car at the Dee Marshes. I just banged words into my iPad as if they were going out of fashion. It’s strange how a change of venue can help. That, and having spent several days researching my subject-matter. Sometimes it helps to work out what you want to say before actually trying to say it. Other times, banging out any old crap can work too. The important thing is to get stuff written.

I later took a short walk on the marsh. It was muddier than I expected—which I guess makes me something of an idiot.
