Free Range Writing #2: The Clydeside Distillery

It's been too wet recently to write outside, so today I went for a tour of the Clydeside Distillery in Glasgow. I had an excellent tour guide, and afterwards spent time in the cafe working on my manuscript for THE MASH HOUSE on my typewriter.

One of the major conflicts in the novel revolves around the ownership of a fictional distillery. On the tour I couldn't help but imagine my characters in this space, shouting over the noise of the machinery, sweating in the heat.

If you get the chance, go along and have a look around the Clydeside Distillery. It's a really nice space, with friendly staff and a good cafe. They even give out free shortbread with coffee.

Thanks to you all once again for supporting my novel, it's truly appreciated. I'm about a third of the way towards the overall target, and I'll keep you updated every now and then.
