I wrote the other day about what Roald Dahl thought about being a writer. I’ve been putting a lot of my spare time lately into one of my stories which has the working title “Shadows”. It’s going great: I’m in the groove and on a roll. Nearly every night this week I’ve been staying up late at the downstairs computer immersed in that world. It is a very creative feeling: working on the rough draft of something completely new! I have to tear myself away from it to get to bed in time for a sufficient night’s sleep before my next day’s work. This is some of the worst weather I’ve had for biking into the office which is just as well since I can lose myself in details of the Shadows plot while I slog it out. I just don’t have enough time to do everything I want to do. There’s nothing like keeping busy to make you feel vital!
