I can’t tell if this is making me more or less creative

So here I am, spending most of my time holed up inside. I’m keeping myself safe from that horrible virus, and in the process hopefully keeping other people safe as well. I’m reasonably lucky. I can still earn an income and my basic needs are largely met. So, until there’s some major change in the circumstances of this pandemic, I suppose this is where I’m going to stay.

As a creative person, you’d think this would be a godsend. And yet, I’m not sure that this is such a great thing for my creative processes.

I’m a writer, not an explorer

Today I’m feeling a bit grumpy. Grumpy, grumpy grumpy. And when I feel grumpy, there is only one thing I can possibly do. Write a grumpy post.

Real heroes don’t wear capes – or their undies on the outside

What I’m going to say in this post isn’t particularly original. A lot of people all over the world are saying it. But it’s relevant and it’s true, so I’m going to throw in my ten cents worth as well.

I’m talking about heroes.

When the story we’re living in gets a lot bigger

As a rule, I try to keep the contents of this blog pretty light. After all, there’s more than enough heaviness out in the world as it is. You don’t need to trawl too much through the internet or the media to find it. My preference is to try not to add to it.
