As promised, here's your weekend update. Happy to report that after a couple of weeks stalled I've had a sudden burst of progress and have just this minute finished Chapter Twenty-Two. Three more to go now!
I've been looking forward to this one for a long time. There are some chapters that you need to figure out as you come to write them, like the one I've just finished. Others you know in intimate detail well in advance. Chapter Twenty-Three is one of the latter, and one of the first parts of the story to appear in my head. It's needed writing for a while, and now its time has come.
Thanks for following these updates, and as a reward here's a picture of a day-old foal I met a year ago on a hill in Norfolk:
