On the train going to The Cut at Halesworth.
At The Cut.
It’s very busy at The Cut and we order our food as soon as we can (so we can eat and get started on our work).
After we’ve been fed and watered we get our laptops out and get down to do some work. It’s really busy and noisy but we manage (just about) to discuss fonts and formatting the pages of our current work.
We played around with these measurements…
Novel-font BOOK ANTIQUA 10 or 12
Poetry-font BOOKMAN OLD STYLE 11.5 OR CALIBRI 12 for a less formal look. For ebook, COURIER NEW is a good one to use.

Then it was time for some more food…
All fired up and eager to get home to do more writing we left The Cut and walked to the station to get the train. Fortunately this sign below told us we were on the right platform (inside joke).
A super day with super writers!
Suzan Collins, Pam Finch, Helen Thwaites, Enid Thwaites, Helen Meneghello, Carole Gomez-Cornejo and Jo Wilde met in November at a Just Write It! writing workshop. All seven of the authors have agreed to publish their works in time for the Author Fair/Pop up bookshop at The Coconut Loft, in Lowestoft, this July. Their works include novels, autobiographies and memoirs.
Amazon 5* review of the new book-Chatty Cat: Spring into Summer
Can almost hear Chatty Cat telling her story
The next instalment of a lady who adopts a stray cat and how they spend their days together. Again just like the first book written by Suzan this book is filled with everything you should know before taking on a kitten or a fully grown cat. So much information from Suzan and also from Chatty Cat’s point of view. A must read for all ages whether you have a kitten/cat or are thinking of owning one or rather them owning you! Sit back and enjoy the story and the sketches and photographs , you will be thrilled.
It is called Chatty Cat: Spring into Summer.
The second in the Chatty Cat series follows Chatty through spring and summer in her new home as she gradually learns to relax and enjoy her surroundings. “The sun has warmed up the ground and now the sun is shining on my tummy and making it nice and warm. It’s all quiet in the garden and I fall asleep. I am dreaming…” Life still holds a few surprises for Chatty, with new friends and new experiences. Chatty Cat is a real rescue cat in a real home and her adventures provide a useful guide to caring for your pet. It’s not just a manual – but it will help you look after your cat. It’s not just a story – but you can read it like one. It’s not just a children’s book – but children of all ages will love it, and so will adults. The author has a real knack for getting into Chatty Cat’s head and explaining her behaviour in ways that everyone can recognise.
