Well, short answer to that is hanging out with great people in great places! If you don't recognise the pic it's the Giant's Causeway on the North Coast of Northern Ireland.
Today the Murph and I joined our friends Bill and Fiona for a nice walk along the cliff from Portballintrae to the Giant's Causeway. We stopped off for a bite to eat and had plenty of time to chat. I haven't seen them for a while so they were really excited to hear about the book. Bill especially knew that writing was one of my burning ambitions so they are both keeping their fingers crossed that I get good news in the New Year.
