On the train going to The Cut at Halesworth.

On the train going to Halesworth

 

 

 

 

At The Cut.

The place is heaving

It’s very busy at The Cut and we order our food as soon as we can (so we can eat and get started on our work).

At the counter

My dinner

After we’ve been fed and watered we get our laptops out and get down to do some work. It’s really busy and noisy but we manage (just about) to discuss fonts and formatting the pages of our current work.

We played around with these measurements…

Novel-font BOOK ANTIQUA 10 or 12

Poetry-font BOOKMAN OLD STYLE 11.5 OR CALIBRI 12 for a less formal look. For ebook, COURIER NEW is a good one to use.

Size of page-

Margins- Top 2cm  Bottom 2cm Left 2cm Right 2cm

Paper-width12.7cm height 20.29cm

Layout-header 1cm footer 1cm

With laptops

Then it was time for some more food…

Half a cake

All fired up and eager to get home to do more writing we left The Cut and walked to the station to get the train. Fortunately this sign below told us we were on the right platform (inside joke).

This platform is for LowestoftAt Halesworth Train station

A super day with super writers!

Amazon 5* review of the new book-Chatty Cat: Spring into Summer

Can almost hear Chatty Cat telling her story

The next instalment of a lady who adopts a stray cat and how they spend their days together. Again just like the first book written by Suzan this book is filled with everything you should know before taking on a kitten or a fully grown cat. So much information from Suzan and also from Chatty Cat’s point of view. A must read for all ages whether you have a kitten/cat or are thinking of owning one or rather them owning you! Sit back and enjoy the story and the sketches and photographs , you will be thrilled.
