Why we can see it in others

Last night I was sat in the pub with some friends from the improvised comedy workshop I attend. We were all lovingly stroking each others egos and I got to thinking: ‘why can’t people see how good they are?’ Example: one of the guys at improv is also a talented guitarist and songwriter but he…… Continue reading Why we can see it in others

These days

Nothing can make you miss your glory days like being trapped inside on a beautiful afternoon like this.

Fear of finishing

So at the weekend I reached the 90,000 work mark on my novel, a piece of work I started in June of last year and it looks like I’m actually going to do it, I’m going to finish. From the off I have said I want to write a hundred thousand words and although I…… Continue reading Fear of finishing
