Write. Write. Write. Right?
I have recently begun listening to the Times Online Books Podcast. Today I listened to author Philip Pullman speaking about his new book, Once Upon A Time in the North at the Sunday Times Oxford Literary Festival.
Pullman mentioned that if you write, you have to get into the habit of writing every single day, without fail, without exception. Writing “is a marathon, not a sprint”.
Very true, and something I am very guilty of. I guess it’s back to the keyboard, back to the laptop, back to the pad of paper and pen. I don’t have writer’s block, I just have writer’s laziness…
On the subject of literary/book festivals, I’m going to my first one in a few weeks – the Kingston Readers’ Festival which runs from 23 April to 23 May of this year.
