I started to think about how it would feel to be truly stranded...and wound up with a opening chapter of a character waking up in the back of a taxi, on a cliff top in Cornwall, with no idea how she got there.(less)
Lucy Dawson If it's really not happening, I take a break and go and have a biscuit. Thankfully *touches wood* I've never had serious writer's block.

“kept my promise – because when I slept with Hannah it was just sex and it meant less than nothing – I honestly believe it’s true. I had, and still have, no feelings for Hannah whatsoever. I don’t even particularly like her as a person. I made a mistake – but it’s scarily easy to do.”
Lucy Dawson, White Lies

“Jonathan Day has no autonomy in his relationship with his parents, so he seeks out situations where he gets one up on someone in a parental position instead – I was just a vehicle for his need to lose and then regain control. Sometimes he uses sex to get his own way, sometimes power. He’s happy to play the poor little boy or the powerful man, as long as he has the upper hand. If I hadn’t become his victim, I would have found it fascinating that he could suppress or invoke feelings for the purpose of control, rather than the authenticity of the feelings themselves.”
Lucy Dawson, White Lies

“Like all good liars he adapted his story to suit his immediate circumstance. Did that make me angry? Of course it did.”
