So this morning I updated my site with my favourite recent dictionary checks, knowing that it was my first post in a while but I hadn’t realised quite how many posts I had missed. I usually try to post at least once a week and it seems I didn’t do very many at all in March (none in fact – eeek). I haven’t been kicking back, feet up, watching TV the whole time though. It’s been a busy month. This is what I’ve been up to…
Firstly I’m rewriting my novel. I got some amazing editorial suggestions from two of the biggest literary agents in London who both highly praised my writing and recommended I make a few changes. Of course I’m taking their advice and am about a quarter of the way through rewriting the book. It takes a lot of time and, alongside my full-time job and monthly trips to Paris, it’s taking longer than I’d like.
I also made a big lifestyle change this month. I stopped taking the tube/bus to work and instead am commuting on the river. It’s amazing. I find every journey exciting and much less stressful. I’ve also been top and tailing each day with a trip to the spa. I joined a hotel health club by the harbour so am swimming, steaming and sailing my way to more productive days.
It’s all meant that I just haven’t got around to writing as many blog posts as I would have liked. I’ve been doing the visits though. Last weekend I was in Paris and saw the amazing Jeanne Lanvin exhibition at the Palais Galliera, which I would highly recommend and will write about soon. I also checked out the Rodin Museum again and the American Cathedral – one of the most beautiful buildings in the city.
While all this was going on, the amazing Janine over at The Good Life France asked me to share a couple of guest posts which featured in their newsletters and I had quite a few new followers as a result. Thank you very much if you’re one of these – I promise there will be more Paris/France posts from me very soon!
Anyway, this is just a quick update to let you know I am still here, still researching amazing things about Paris that I hope you will enjoy reading in the coming days.
