Rant

As you've noticed, I've been making more time to write here. Stealing minutes here and there (as Julia Cameron suggests in The Right To Write) really works. Of course, telling myself I'll write just a little bit always leads to spending more time than I'd originally planned for. Which is exactly the point. I've also [...]

Here and now…ish

I am writing again. Journaling, letters, something that could turn into a novel - and here. All thanks to Julia Cameron's The Right To Write - or thanks to my friend A., who lent me TRTW? Or thanks to the book launch of another friend that made me want to write again? Or maybe thanks [...]
