Stay a while to share my thoughts on writing and life.

March 2009

Gazing at the lengthening purple twilights and taking in the sights of budding primroses and daffodils has convinced me: winter’s really over.

It is time for a spring clean – not only around the house and inside the cupboards, but also in writing. Which ideas have become stale? Are we in need of some fresh ones? Painting a room or moving things around the house can help enhance creativity – which is just what I did this month.

A couple of writerly profiles also helped motivate me: The Woman Writer and Writers’ News in the UK have done just that. Will post these on the website next month. Also in April – a reading from my debut short story collection, The Year Spring Turned into Winter is scheduled in Lausanne on the 24th of April – mark the date.

And of course, the podcast of March’s Bookmark program is now online – this month we’ve reviewed three biographies:Somebody: The Reckless Life and Remarkable Career of Marlon Brando by Stefan Kanfer, Wonderful Tonight by Patty Boyd and Penny Junor and Unbowed, a memoir by Kenyan environmentalist and Nobel Prize laureate Wangari Maathai.

Have a wonderful, creative spring!
