A very solid reading month, one that saw the completion of my journey through the surviving corpus of Ancient Greek Drama. I’m also continuing my read of Agatha Christie – I’ve now read thirty-six of her books, which while still less than half her total output, is at least a respectable total.

In terms of writing, most of the work was done at the start and end of the month. I am now well into Chapter Twelve on Old Phuul. Including edits, the manuscript currently sits at 56,031 words.
