I was interested in this article from The New Yorker. I'd like to think other companies might follow suit...I wonder, will it catch on?
Posts are rather erratic this month as February is my writing month. In past Februaries I have posted great first lines of novels and great last lines of novels, tips from writers and places that famous writers have found to write. If you have time to browse February 2011- 2014, or under Simply Write, I hope you'd find some posts of interest.
I remember reading about writers who went away to write. Vera Brittain whose memoirs Testament of Youth and Testament of Experience I loved comes to mind. She would go to a small hotel on the south coast, or to her cottage in the New Forest (taking staff with her) and I thought 'Lucky woman' and I have to admit, with considerable envy 'Its all right for some!'
Well, my turn has come! I am going away for a month to concentrate on my novel!
I won't tell you where (in case the paparazzi seek me out, ha ha) but will post some clues over the next week or two....
