I took a trip to London today. With the second draft of Lore now completed (I still need to do a quick third draft before I send it to the publishers), I made use of some of my down time to do a bit more planning on one of my future novels - Pixie-Led. This particular tale is a faery story that I originally intended to be aimed at younger readers. I am now minded to alter and darken the story somewhat and raise the target audience to an adult readership. As well as a bit of planning, I also managed to get the first page of text written for the novel, although that page contains only one line of text lol...
Whilst in London, I visited this lovely pub:
Yours Trully Enjoying a Drink at The Spaniards Inn
The Spaniard's Inn is has a rich history and was frequented by Dick Turpin (his father was the landlord at the pub at the time). Charles Dickens and Keats were also frequent customers at the establishment. The pub is mentioned in Dicken' The Pickwick Papers and Bram Stoker's Dracula, whilst Keats actually wrote Ode to a Nightingale whilst drinking in the pub gardens. Not a bad place, I thought, to get my own writing pad out lol:
