I finished writing my book, THE CARD, last Friday. It's a story about a man who picks up playing cards off the street. This is draft 8 and I think it's more or less there now. There may be one more draft to go; we'll see what my editor says. Then I get to design it. I emailed the manuscript off to her on Friday morning and then set off for a lunch meeting with Peepshow. Walking up Kingsland Road, I found a playing card lying on the pavement. I've been collecting cards I find on the street since 1993, but this is the first one I have found in about 5 years.
