What drives you to write?

The Times Cheltenham Literature Festival is, not unsurprisingly, featuring heavily in The Times newspaper this week.

After this article on plotting by crime writer Andrew Taylor, todays edition features various authors talking about what drives them to write.

Keep an eye on the website for more articles and podcasts.

Three notable things:

1. A lovely two hour coffee break in Starbucks today with a friend who also has an autistic teenage son.

2. Sorting out some personal financial planning at the bank before the coffee break.

3. Buying myself a pretty cardigan on a very rainy day!

Thanks for the links Cathy. Writers talking about how/why they write is always fascinating.

2 hours in Starbucks?! Lucky you:-)

I know, very indulgent, wasn't it?!

Coffee with a friend AND a cardigan - sounds like a lovely day. :)

Heading off to check out that article...(hmm, form of procrastination?)
