Ali said as have so many writers - that if you are a writer you feel compelled to do so and whether you were getting paid or not you would still do it. very true - ah but to earn a living and do what you love wouldnt that be bliss?
Its the Oxford Literary festival at the moment and I will be listening to Sophie Hannah on Saturday which I am looking forward to.
Apart from that not much else is happening - I am 90 pages into to draft 4 of The Bittersweet Vine (thats normal draft 1 to most writers- due to my impatience) and 5000 words into Under The Coconut Tree. I can see light at the end of the tunnel now for The Bittersweet - I wanted to work on it tonight but I dont think that is going to happen - flu has me in its grasp - although I hauled my bones into work today!
And another thing taht I must share- I was drafting Bittersweet the other day and I was so impressed with one line I wroe _ I had to google it to check it was actually my work and I hadnt stolen it!! It made me laugh- but tehre you go - maybe my writing is improving.
Have a fabuloso Easter if I dont blog before then- I will be reading Tess Gerritson Body Double
