Normally I would browse second hand books for blackout poetry. Retyping the text out of necessity makes me think I should always do it this way from now on. I hope this is a way back into writing, a way to climb out of the lockdown brain fog pit

Refuelling the novelling head with some random text blackouts.
You know those pictures of amazing bookshops you see on Pinterest and think “Botheration, where ARE these bookshops?” Ok, I will tell you. I found this second hand bookshop yesterday and I just cannot believe I have been walking past this place for 2 years… You can find The Scarlet Pimpernel at 25 London Road, St Leonard’s on Sea, East Sussex, U.K. Nice detail: the prices are written on slips of paper in each book. Also, it’s by sea and just around the corner from some great coffee shops.
dreaming of the reed bunting’s song and a cool breeze.
hope everyone is coping with this hottest of summers.
stay cool, stay hydrated, and type on.
