My little writing nest
When I’m writing I sit here, coffee to my left and bookshelves to my right. The card to the top of the lamp is because the bulb’s a bit too big and sticks out above it, blinding me. The reference book open there is Ian Mortimer’s superbly readable “Time Traveller’s Guide to Medieval England”, and there’s my favourite coffee mug, brought from New Zealand. If you look closely you might make out my iPod Shuffle, the only bit of Apple kit I will ever own. Above the computer screen (showing Scrivener) I have this page from the Rolls of the Northamptonshire coroner in the 14th century. It details an event which took place in 1322 and is the insisting behind my current WIP ‘The Raven’s Wing’.
