What Gets In The Way

 (by Jan Cascarini).

How many times have I said to myself, ‘Tomorrow… I’ll start writing tomorrow, once I’ve got this out of the way’? This, of course, being anything from emailing the phone company about a discrepancy in my latest bill to spring cleaning the entire house. (Needless to say, the house is only ever cleaned in fits and starts.)

Elizabeth's Second Novel Makes Good Start

Member Elizabeth Ducie is hoping a recent competition success is a sign of things to come. Elizabeth is currently working on her second novel, Counterfeit!, which is set in Southern Africa and deals with dodgy goings-on in the pharmaceutical industry. It is the first in a series of three novels, featuring three strong female protagonists.

What do you write?
 
Short stories and novels – my debut novel, Secret of the Song, was published in September 2015. I’m also the co-author of a series of non-fiction guides for writers.

When and where do you write? 

 
The spare room is my office and it’s there I do most of my writing and the admin for CreativeWritingMatters, including all the competitions we run. Consequently, you can hardly see the surface of my desk, so when I can, I go to the Devon and Exeter Institution in Cathedral Yard. It’s a wonderful library as well as a great place to write with no distractions.
