And a soup... Recipe below (I swear it makes you glow like the Ready Brek kid)

Plus I share a couple of monologues I wrote from two character points of view and discuss how these exercises can help get under the skin of your characters (ouch).

Get in touch and tell me about your reading and writing, and have a very darling festive season.

Coconut lentil soup

you need:
Split red lentils (handful or two)
Can of coconut milk
turmeric (teaspoon)
ginger (I use the powder kind... it's fine)
lime juice (a good squirt)
Sesame oil
Veg stock (about as much as the coconut milk)
chilli (dried flakes)
garlic (3 cloves)
spinach leaves

Chuck it all in, boil it, simmer it till the lentils have softened and dissolved... 

Trust me. It's delicious, and I can't cook.
