I have decided to join the current trend of writing a progress journal. So I have a bit of spare time and I have just sharpened three pencils and put them on one side of my desk. I bought two pads the other day, one just to regurgitate ideas on and the other to actually try to develop my plot in a more constructive manner. I have written "start writing..." in the front of the first one. I have about two hours before I am due at the pub, and in the mean time I have decided to research Neighbours. I haven't watched Neighbours in some time and I think it is important to my budding literary work that I know whether Dr Carl Kennedy and his wife Susan are still married after what must be ten or maybe twelve years? I will report back shortly with my progress on this, and whether any of the old crew; Toadfish, Evil Paul Robinson, Harold Bishop or Lou Carpenter remain regular fixtures.
