There’s this book I’m supposed to be writing, about backpackers in Sydney and a café owner in the Lakes. But… yeah there are cat videos on Facebook and actually, I think it’s high time I cleaned the fridge. And behind the freezer. Okay, I’m exaggerating for effect – I have neither cleaned inside the fridge nor behind the freezer, but I have watched a lot of cat videos and been totally Upworthy-ed.

Today I saw something on Buzzfeed: How ASOS is turning us all into Cher. Very funny, but with a side effect of keeping down with the kids when it comes to fashion — Wait, is this procrastination with a purpose? Could this actually be classed as… research? There’s a link at the bottom of the Cher/ASOS thing: 21 Things All Sweary Girls Are Sick of Hearing. I’m a sweary girl. My characters are sweary girls. I can use this. This. Is. Research.

I’m amused and doing research. Book Three’s practically writing itself.
