Dear InkShotters, for the next couple of weeks I will be in the Philippines, taking my little laptop and notebooks up in the air to land safely in Manila, for a thoroughly ex-pat kind of holiday in a friend's rather lavish apartment. Think mornings spent swimming in a resort-style pool, lunchtimes spent sampling the local food and coffee, and day trips out to islands and volcanoes. Nice! Will I post from Manila? Almost certainly, but it depends on whether I get any writing done. Chances are I will be relaxing too much to write, but we shall see. So adieu from me: watch this space for updates.
