Inspired by Austen (oh and by the way, I’m back!)


Hello there, after 7 months of being in the writing wilderness, I have returned. An updated look, and a fresh perspective.  I deliberately stopped writing for a while. I felt dry and empty of words, and so concentrated on my health and fitness. Walking, running, gymming (I'm not sure 'to gym' is a verb but …
