What is it about coffee shops? Like J K Rowling, I find them hugely conducive to getting words down on paper. There’s nothing but a chair, a table and a large Americano. No interference from family or cat. No access to domestic appliances. And one can switch one’s phone off. With 20,000 words to my target, that looks like £80-worth of caffeine to get there – though I do also write at my desk.

Anyway, I’m currently at 60,000 words.
