As a writer I am always in training, but how is this any different from being a human being? I intake data, use it in the biggest testing lab there is, and then I either keep it or discard it.

A number of projects are underway in my career as a writer, and my life, both of them aimed at clearing confusions off the line and making more productive. I understand that sometimes these blogs read like me revving my engine and not actually moving forward in any way for a long time, and then suddenly the intellectual vehicle lurches forward.

It is interesting how different, seemingly unrelated areas of research, suddenly coalesce and the jigsaw, or sometimes a jigsaw I may not even have recognised, comes to light.

Poetry books are nearly finished – they are in the editing stages. Books I have been reading on and off for a while are nearly finished. Novels I have been writing are edging towards the finishing line. Short story collections are collecting themselves in readiness for being published and read.

I work hard. I enjoy what I do. The dividends are amazing, always – because whatever happens I am learning and growing.
