3BT: journalism, writers, and good food

1. I do my first ever interview as a freelance journalist. I'm not quite ready to be the next Mariella Frostrup - maybe in time for Rob Lowe's next book - but it goes well, with no need for prodding or artificial sounding questions. I've chosen my subject carefully; I knew this lady would have fascinating stories, and I am happy to be proved right.

2. At my writers' group, a newish member reads out her story and beams when we all (deservedly) congratulate her on her excellent writing. I recognise that smile, and it feels good even to see its reflection on someone else's face.

3. Honey-glazed duck, accompanied by a glass of red wine.
