Writing and other things

Actually this post is mainly about writing.

I think I’m getting to a point where there seems to be some sort of plot forming. I just need to fill in the gaps between the main events so the characters can get to where they need to go and do so believably.  Here’s a little snippet of what’s been occurring:

The smoke billowed past the window in languidly contorted patters, obscuring the view of the countryside speeding past outside. Annabelle turned to look at Edith, who was sprawled on the seat opposite her. She was fast asleep despite the constant rumbling of the train as it rattled it’s way forward. She smiled to herself, thinking that once again she had let Edith bully her into something. Cajole. Bullying was too strong a word for Edith. She had cajoled Annabelle into coming to Weirton. She reached across the seat to look for her notebook so she could attempt to write something vaugely artistic. She felt she should be inspired by the romance of being on a steam train, and so out the notebook came. Just as she was about to open the cover Edith stirred.

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone sleep so much.” Edith sat up and patted her hair

“Well I was hardly missing anything of any note; trees, fields, cows, village, cows and more fields.”

Annabelle smiled, ‘There were rather more sheep than cows actually.’ 

More soon to follow. I think.
