I suffered hugely with it when I first started to write fiction. The first sniff of rejection and I completely lost faith in what I was doing. This went on for years. I only realised it was actually writer's block when it dawned on me that just the thought of opening the word file for my novel made me feel panicky and sick.

In the end I conquered it by setting a timer for 30 minutes, putting on some relaxation music and telling myself I only had to endure it for half an hour. After a month or two I had enough momentum to dispense with the props and go it alone.(less)

Summer is coming

Wow… where did spring go? I feel like I blinked and it was over, and summer fast on its heels.The highlight of my spring was definitely a week in Southwold with my daughter, who has now left for a summer with Camp America.



Southwold is one of my favourite places on earth. I love everything about it, especially the marshes, lighthouse, and iconic water tower.



The weather was beautiful, and we...

Emma and 3 other people liked Dennis's review of Buddha's Little Finger:
Buddha's Little Finger by Victor Pelevin
"Quite simply an amazing novel written by a virtuoso writer. Pelevin ranges easily into the mystical without ever straining this reader's credulity. It's as if he knows his way around. Maybe he does."
