Thursday

It is a strange time of year for me – strange that the psychological lure of a new beginning is quickly subsumed into the longshore drift of routine, and you wonder if it was a just a pause in the spin cycles where the water rushes in and you have to tread water to stay… Read More Thursday

Tuesday

Rattle along. Rattle through. Keep pushing. Try and keep the data-trail clean, and the work will accrue. Just by keeping in regular habits and keeping the whole philosophy of Regular Movement in play I have managed to write many books and have a work ethic that I can be proud of. I am trying this… Read More Tuesday

Sunday

A day of rest – notionally, but really, how often? I don’t believe myself to be a scribomaniac, though I try to write daily. No, I am a writer. I sit here, surrounded by sleeping cats, thinking what strange little creatures they are. They eat to fuel a biological machine that seems designed for sleeping… Read More Sunday

Different genres and their conventions, if learned, are perfect for making something more interesting of whatever genre you are currently working in.

Damage is such a strange thing to think about when it comes to yourself. On some level, for it to be staying with you you have to be holding onto it. I often find that the way I think about myself is not the way that others feel about me. Some of these learned behaviours… Read More Tuesday

I am sat here watching David Letterman talking to Malala. I have really come to like him since he came back – there seems something deeper about him, and he seems to be using his platform to say something, and to talk to those who have something to really say. Maybe I just missed it… Read More Saturday

Monday

Yes, early. I spend a lot of time converting the things I experience and things I think into stories. I like that mad rush of the early stages of the story, where I seem to write more densely, and shovel on the composted notions to help my characters grow. As ends approach things simplify –… Read More Monday
