Hello. I have a question about using the names of real products and companies in a fictional story I am writing. It is based in England and Scotland and all the characters are purely fictional, but to add a touch of reality I'd like to add some real references, some of which include; The Caledonian Sleeper (train), Pot Noodles, Land Rover, Raleigh bicycles, Dalwhinnie Distillery, Fort George (Historic Scotland). Do I need to seek permission? Are the names protected? Or can I just add them to the story without asking? Thank you in advance for your replies. ANDY

I was wondering what sort of writing space my fellow writers have when they are creating their masterpieces.
I spent quite a few years working at a tiny desk in a corner of a very small kitchen but since getting my own apartment a couple of years ago I've set my spare bedroom up as a study. I took a photo a few days ago of the desk area where I write and just wondered if we all have pretty much the same set-up or if there are some radical alternatives out there i.e. floating trays for use in the bath or even anything weirder and more wonderful!
Just entered my first writing competition in 7 years after various health issues and life events conspired to take away the spark.
Regardless of the outcome it felt good to apply myself to regular and consistent periods of writing and although I only had to write the first chapter and synopsis for the competition I actually completed a whole novel!
Thanks also go out to Richard Elder, Victoria Whithear and Jonathan Hopkins for their wise words which proved invaluable in getting my synopsis done.
