‘Every morning between 9 and 12, I go to my room and sit before a piece of paper. Many times, I just sit for three hours with no ideas coming to me. But I know one thing: If an idea does come between 9 and 12, I am there ready for it.’ (Flannery O’Connor)
From my desk I have an extensive view of The Pennines. Sometimes it can be conveniently distracting; but not always.
Until 2011 I was a practising architect. Now I am a practising writer.
