So I’ve been cleaning up my office (well, ok, I’ve been moving piles of paper from one dust covered space to another in an attempt to find somewhere to sit down) and I discovered some old doodles I did many moons ago to alleviate the boredom of what was then my day job. This is a birthday drawing I did for a much loved colleague, Caroline Fox, as you can probably tell we had both only recently read and love Neil Gaiman’s Coraline.
- So many writers come to class with one question dominant in their mind, 'How do I make a living from this?' It's a fair enough question and one I always try to answer well - but it saddens me that it so often overshadows the more relevant questions of 'why am I writing' and 'what am I saying' and 'how do I keep it honest.'
[NOTE: I get many requests to read and comment on manuscripts, which I have to regretfully decline. However I do occasionally work as a consultant for The Inkwell Group If I am accepting MS's at the time and you ask for me by name, they will pass your work on to me.
