I have been furiously active on twitter, over the course of the last month. After the 800 word guideline which I try to follow on WordPress, the 280 character limit is refreshingly sparse and easy to tap out in 30 seconds. On average, it takes me about two hour’s to write out a blog post…… Continue reading When is writing cathartic and when is it self indulgent?
This is a blood and guts novel; or at least, the blood and the guts of the heart and the soul. I’ve just finished it, am sitting on my own in my flat, and I swear the silence around me is humming with a slightly deeper tone.
