O is for observation, a skill that writers are supposed to have in abundance but I don't know that I do. I do like to watch people but what I like to do even more is listen to them. There's only a limited amount you can learn by watching, it goes much further when you shamelessly eavesdrop on all around you wherever you are.
A gem of an example is someone from overseas asking a man on the tube if he knew where Elton John lived as he'd like to see him while he's in the UK! Today's post is short and sweet as I am at a writing retreat this week finishing off the novel so for once am getting on and doing that. Tomorrow will be a guest post and I'll be back on Wednesday, by which time, fingers crossed, I should have at least three more chapters in first draft.
