And so we're back home.
Tuscany was lovely as usual even if the weather didn't cooperate this time.
(the rain did bring mushrooms though... oh soooo nice)
Whilst I was away Tess (from Driftwood) started a conversation about writing and now that I'm back I can finally answer some of her questions...
What am I working on?
Right now my aim is to de-clutter. I have this vision of beginning September and the new school year with a tidy house and streamlined studio... use it or lose it kind of thing. It'll never totally happen... but if I don't start..
What do I write what I do?
I write to remember. To stop time. When I was 8 I started my first diary. It was rubbish and pedestrian and full of self-important thoughts... like all the diaries that came after.... I wish I still had them, but the thing that i like is 'the writing down'. Not re-reading them. Waaaaay to awkward. I leave that to my biographers (ha ha ha)
And it's the same with the blog. It's nice to know that even if the days fly by in a fuzzy blur if I stop and write... it means I have stopped... and I have noticed. And I have proof that something has happened!
How does my writing differ from others in my genre?
...groan... English is not my first language so...bad grammar? the odd spelling mistake? abuse of exclamation marks and full stops? I don't know, I like trying to write like I speak (but with less swearing)... and I'd like to think we're having a conversation (I try not to think I might be talking to myself most of the times. Is there anybody out there?)
How does my writing process work?
...urgh... pro-what? I'd like to say I plan, but I don't really. If I have something to say I try remembering it till I have the time to sit down and write about it. Does that count? Generally I let the photos take the lead, words just hitch a ride with them.
I'm not going to nominate anybody, BUT I'd love to read all about you... so let me know if you feel like answering
