Insecure Writer's Support Group #5

It's time for the Insecure Writer's Support Group again. You can sign up here.

This month's co-hosts are Feather Stone, Beverly Stowe McClure, Mary Aalgaard, Kim Lajevardi and Chemist Ken. So, thank you to them.

Every month there is an (optional) question and this month it is: Do you have any rituals that you use when you need help getting into the zone?

The short answer is "No". The longer answer is "No, I haven't got time for that. I've barely got time to write, never mind time to ritualise something that is extraneous to the writing itself."

My outlook has improved slightly since last month, and I've been working on a couple of pieces and a couple of pitches, but my now fifteen-month-old son is now taking his first steps, climbing everything and getting over his immunisations. The brief chances I had to write any more than this appear to have well and truly disappeared.

Carruthers Ten Years On: May 2010

May 2010 on the Carruthers blog was dominated by a game to see how many words could be made from the word, Carruthers. It turns out there are 404.

I took a number of photos this month, including these of field in the most beautiful part of the world and of my father.
