Writing and Late Night Talk

As mentioned in my last post I’m doing some late night talks with authors. I’m speaking with Angus Watson this week and I’ve got another two arranged for the coming weeks.

About this time of year people typically post things about what they’ve done over the last year, or even the last decade. I thought about it, but decided not to do that.
