The Easter Holidays have been blessed with beautiful weather so far and hopefully that will remain so. However, sunshine and holidays can leave us neglecting our writing. It's far too nice to be sitting at the PC and there seems to be so many more energetic pursuits that can distract us.

But it doesn't have to stop us from thinking or planning. Our chair can often be seen with a dog, on a lead in one hand and a Dictaphone in the other. Ok, it might look like she is talking to herself - or wandering around in a world of her own - but the cog wheels are turning and plans are being made.

I'm a fan of the notebook myself, which can be a bit of a problem if you don't carry a large handbag - but be without it - I dare not. You can guarantee that I will have a "PING" moment should I leave it at home and no matter how much I think I will remember - I never do.

I am sure there are more technological ways of recording your musings whilst out with the kids, or enjoying the weather, but I am not the lady to advise you on those.

My advice is simple - Be prepared.




Ian Porter will be talking about suffragettes and suffragists at Tunbridge Wells Library on Tuesday 17th May at 7pm.

Tickets cost £2 are available at the library 01892 522352.
