How the problems I’ve been encountering lately are a sign (I hope) that my book is starting to come together.
How was I ever able to organise my thoughts without ‘atomising’ them—breaking them down into smaller and smaller discrete notes—and then linking them together?
I’ve known it from the start, but this new way of making notes is perfect for the way I tend to work. It’s what I’ve been looking for all these years.
On the unavoidably provisional nature of essay collections.
Out of nowhere, I suddenly found myself with an interesting new idea…
In which going through a lot of faff yields benefits.
In which I am extremely excited about a powerful (and free) new app.
In which I decide to break a self-imposed rule.
The stuff I plough through for my readers!
In which fortune favours my prepared mind twice in one week.
