Where does time go? Watching Argentina v Mexico, World Cup ‘06 in a B&b at Whitby genuinely feels like a bit ago. And Lordy, how I’ve changed. I got older.

Honestly hear this more from women writers than men: "Apologies for my shameless self-promotion." Oh please, please, please stop saying that. This is your art. The world needs it. Share it widely and unabashedly. Only the haters will mind & who cares about them anyway?

Me too. More sorry for the young kids and other half. That’s a lot to bear. You just never know how much ppl are struggling. Which is why ppl shouldn’t be dicks. You never know what tiny thing or pressure can make the difference, eh?

Just heard an old friend has taken his life. It’s all very well saying you should talk to people but, people: BE FUCKING AVAILABLE.
