I know there is the wax and then the wane, so I use the time to do other things that help my writing instead of stressing that I’m not writing myself – reading is a huge help (and usually gets the cogs turning again), and there is always plenty of admin to keep up with. I have a very complex (and beautifully colour coded!) spreadsheet I use to keep track of all my writing, as well as which publications are currently accepting submissions, so that takes some looking after - it’s always good to get it completely up to date.

That sounds flippant, but it’s absolutely true– there’s no better high than when I’m completely lost in puzzling out what words fit where in the poem I’m trying to build. I also love when someone tells me they’ve liked something I’ve read – I almost forget sometimes that my poem is out in the world, and other peoples’ eyes are on it. That’s a lovely thing. (less)

This is a difficult one to review, as the plot is so intricately woven and reliant on the gradual unravelling of multiple secrets that I can't say much for fear of spoiling a reveal or a plot point for another reader. What I will say is that this is ...more
