How After Wimbledon Came to Be

Having finished my degree, I celebrated by taking six months off tobackpack round Australia.  At some point -  I think it was in Sydney - I decided it was time to tackle a second novel.  Unlike with The Dr Pepper Prophecies, this time I knew I could do it.

I was very into tennis at the time (I still enjoy it, but don'tfollow it as much as I did then) and had been in Melbourne for thesecond week of the Australian Open.  For the first time I actually wentto Centre Court (the Rod Laver Arena there) and I saw Venus Williams and Roger Federer play.  I know there was a third match, but I can'tremember now who was playing.  Obviously, it wasn't that good!  I spentmuch of the rest of the week hanging out in Federation Square, wherethey had a huge screen set up.  It was beautiful weather and theatmosphere was wonderful - definitely one of the highlights of my trip.

It was also one of the low points, because while I was there I brokeup with my boyfriend.  We'd been together several years and I hadagonised for months over whether I should break it off.  I hadn'texpected to meet 'the one' at that point in my life (I was 23 when westarted dating) and consequently had managed to convince myself that hewasn't it.  At 27 I married him, which just goes to show how much Iknow.

I sat on my dorm bunk bed (deeply luxurious this trip was) andwrote.  I can't actually remember how long it took me - I shall have todig out my travel diary - but I wrote quite intensively so I don't think it was much over a month.  I had a cold during some of it, which helped since I didn't want to go anywhere anyway.

The first draft of what I then called 30 Love was a lotdifferent to the version that will be published.  A good chunk of it was more like therapy, with Lucy doing much agonizing over her decisions.Good for me, but quite boring to read!  I also felt it had got a bit too dark in places.  Someday maybe I'll type up some of it, so you can seewhat I mean.  The basic plot, however, remains the same.

Unlike with The Dr Pepper Prophecies, which I took out and edited several times over the years, After Wimbledon sat in a drawer until after I published TDPP.  When I started typing it up, I became eager to find out what would happen next (I couldn'tremember after all that time!).  I hope you feel the same when you read it.
