When it comes to writing I’m a kind of feast or famine type of writer.
For months I’ve not written anything of note. A few ideas for stories, often badly formed, a verse or two of poetry and a couple of blog titles. Nothing definite and nothing developed.
I then go away on holiday, a two-week cruise visiting Spain and Portugal and suddenly something is unlocked, and creative juices begin to flow. To my delight I write every day. Nothing forced just a pleasant pastime.
So, I get back home, and daily demands kick in and my writing dries up and I stop again.
However, one day I flick through my holiday exercise books and I decide to copy some of the pieces onto my computer. No real thought behind this, just a mundane activity, with maybe a tweak here and there and then I suddenly realise that I have over twenty blogs, a daily diary of my holiday and a long fact/fiction account of a character observation (5000 words!) and I say to myself, “Hey I’m back in business!”
So, I’m posting my first blog today; first one for such a long time and we’ll see how long this feast lasts!
