  1. I like writing. I like doing it even better if I think people are going to read what I have written.
    No, start again – I am obsessed by the process of writing and when I am working on something new it is almost impossible for anyone to attract my attention or think about anything else. I love it when people tell me they like what I have written – it makes all the long lonely hours, exploring unknown places with people I have never met, worthwhile.

    It’s great to find a site like Bookwitch – like a hyperspace crossroads of weird and interesting ideas – I shall certainly come back to discuss more – when I have torn myself free of my latest obsession.

    Keep blogging – keep writing and, ost important, keep reading! – See you again soon

  2. Thank you! Weird and interesting…
