The Anarchic Entanglement of Being Alive

2017-10-18T11:24:42+00:00

  William Blyghton reflects on the highs and lows of writing a first novel.   It took three years to write The House by the Marsh – or perhaps a lifetime. It was triggered by the death of my wife Liz and by nursing her for the eighteen months of her dying. Cancer... It was [...]

2017-05-19T13:05:39+00:00

There’s a lot written in various books, magazines and websites about the importance of the ‘writer’s voice’ – that element of your writing that makes it uniquely yours – but many writers worry that they can’t find their voice; that they don’t even know what it is, or worse, that they’re merely emulating their literary [...]

It’s interesting being surrounded by writers and editors (note to self: look up the collective nouns – a ‘nib’ of writers, a ‘slash’ of editors?) how the immediate reaction to such a demand causes one’s throat [...]

Writing As Therapy

2015-11-09T15:50:12+00:00

Even if you just scribble down how you’re feeling and throw it away, writing is good for your emotional and mental health. The other day I wrote something down and threw it away. It wasn’t in a fit of pique; I knew before I had started that its destiny involved wicker. A particularly thorny problem [...]
