‘The terrible thing about being a writer is that you don’t decide to become one, you discover that you are one.’
James Baldwin, The Creative Process, 1962
This website is about my experience of being a writer. The ups and downs, successes and failures, and the many times when I told myself it was over.
It’s about the importance of learning the craft, of having supportive, like-minded friends and of being persistent.
It’s about motivation, accountability and personal demons.
But mostly it’s about a small part of a fifty year journey.
