A Chat with the Author Michael Campling – 10 September 2021 – Indoors and thinking about pacing

Beaten by the unpredictable weather, I’m inside for this chat.

There’s no Lottie panting alongside me, and no pesky wind either. I talk a bit about the pacing of my work in progress, i.e. keeping the story, and importantly, the mystery, rolling along at a reasonable speed.

Also, in response to a question from a site member (thank you, Randolph) I’m chatting about allotments, which are mentioned in Mystery in May.

I hope you find it interesting, and if you’d like your questions answered, please let me know by commenting or dropping me a line, and I’ll do my best.

In today’s chat, I talk a little about the importance of characters in my writing, and about the principle I have of keeping my work ‘in the moment’.

And, arguably more importantly, Lottie looks for the ball we lost yesterday.

I hope you enjoy listening.

Another chat, recorded while I walk through the Devon fields (and lanes) with Lottie.

There are quite a few tramping noises in the first few minutes as I march along the road, but these subside later.

I hope you enjoy listening.
