📅 Thought for today:
‘To be a novelist, all I need is a pen and a piece of paper.’
— Quentin Tarantino

I was writing the book again this weekend, after a break of a few weeks.
Part of the work I did included writing a chapter in a notebook with a pen on a train.
The writing filled many pages and came quickly and easily.
This weekend I tried to transcribe it to the computer and I realised that I could be barely read my own handwriting.
I think this is partly because my pen could not make the marks as fast as my brain was thinking, and partly because of the movement of the train.
So Quentin is right, up to a point.
By the way, there is a little game I play with the quotes, which is why I keep a database of quotes to use when the moment is right. There is an index of quotes based on the first name of the person quoted. Every six months of these thoughts are in an eBook, and every six months I try to include at least one quote for each letter of the alphabet, and then two if possible. The quotes have to fit the moment – not the other way around.
More news on the eBooks shortly.
