Why Am I Writing?
Several years ago I attended a writing workshop and received the best piece of advice ever. We were told to write just 100 words a day. To sit down at whatever time suited us (mine’s usually about 6.30am) and to just begin writing. Some days it would be little more than a ‘to-do’ list, others it would be a short story but, as Mao is reported to have said, every journey starts with a single step. Now I’ve written four novels – three ‘golden age’ crime novels and a family saga – so we never know where these steps will lead us.
This blog is a result of my wonderings and wanderings, I hope you find something useful in here. Let me know.
