Here are a few occasional comments on the twists and turns of Pat's writing life, and on the world of words which absorbs us all.

Back to the keyboard

Good morning readers

I’m delighted to be back at the keyboard.

My writing life has been on hold for a couple of years: that was caused by an illness, which prompted a decision to move house, which involved selling, downsizing, buying, moving, then settling in  … a lot of you will have been there and know how little headspace is left for anything else! I am so glad it is all behind me now.

A small commission – which I accepted reluctantly early this year –  was probably the catalyst to return to writing. While I struggled to write the brief biographical piece required for a man who lived a life worth a hundred thousand words, it did make me realise how much I had missed my writing life.

So here I am.

More will follow.
