This is a photo I took in my local park this morning. The kookaburra is an Australian native bird with a distinctive call that sounds like monkeys chattering! I heard this little guy long before I saw him, swooping in the trees, looking for his breakfast.

My local park has a dog friendly area where dogs are free to run around without a lease. As it was such a lovely morning, I really wanted to be outdoors. I’ve just finished the first draft of my second cozy mystery, so am busy proofreading. What better place to read a manuscript?

Needless to say, I managed to read through just two chapters in between chatting to other dog lovers!

Let’s get our creativity hats on…..where do you like to proofread your work? Or even gather new ideas for other books?

I’m already thinking plotlines, settings and new characters for my next cozy! Fresh air is inspiring!
