Got back earlier…

After a horribly long flight. Yeah, I’m not a fan of long ones, I get travel sick.

Anyway, that aside it was a really nice place. Though I wasn’t too fond of the hills. I knew there were some, I just wasn’t expecting them to be so high and steep in places. The one we’d just walked up to take the picture below was evil; like walking up the peak of a mountain, so I’d advise you get the cable car to the top and walk down Lombard Street to get a good shot.

I’ve decided to share a few of my better pictures with you, so you can see what a beautiful city it is.

Okay, I’ll admit I didn’t get much writing done in the way of Shifter Romance Novella’s 0.5 and 3…BUT I did start writing something. I haven’t written much yet in my notebook, I’m barely starting Chapter 2, which is about 10 A5 pages in, though it will need some fleshing out near the beginning since I started writing it in short and ended up going full after two pages 😛

I just hope it works out because I’m having fun writing it.

I managed to read two and a bit books, Blood Red Road and Eversea, which were both amazing, and started Bitter Blood.

P.S. Does anyone else like going abroad and using those penny machines where it squashes them flat and prints an image onto them (as seen below)??? Or is it just me? 😛

Finally decided…

…what books to take. And here they are!

So these are the four lucky books I’ve chosen to take away with me. I always seem to do better reading the Morganville Vampire series when I’m abroad so books 13, Bitter Blood, and 14, Fall of Night, are coming with me. Then Blood Red Road is coming because I quite like a dystopia novel every now and then and finally my signed copy of Eversea just to add a bit of none paranormal/sci-fi to the mix.

I have been known to devour books in the down-time between outings while on holiday so you never know, I may end up coming back with more than I went with ;D

I’ll also be taking my notebooks with me, because with no laptop, that’s where my writing happens and hopefully San Francisco will give me plenty of ideas/inspiration for me to get on with books 0.5 and 3 in my Shifter Romance Novella series.
