Writing

I find time to write every day. I scrutinise my calendar for that time. I borrow and steal minutes on buses and hours in cafes when I could be doing something else.

I do not distinguise between types of writing: sometimes it is a review, sometimes a document; it could be a specialist article, a travel blog, or a postcard to my daughter in London – it is ultimately creative. It is certainly pleasurable. It almost always takes longer than I anticipated.
