I like words, but I'd say I'm more at ease with my facts than my fiction. It doesn't matter, as every year I intend to write a loooong story - entirely made up! With characters who are not me! - as do so many others around the globe. Why do I do NaNoWriMo? Simply because I like trying my hand at spinning a good yarn - and also because my fellow Yorkshireites are all amazing people. They don't even know how much they've helped me.
- Leeds, England
- German and Germany, travel, collecting books, going to the opera, and yes - as an English person I am contractually obliged to several major bouts of eccentricity a year. Including November.
- Favorite noveling music:
- SILENCE. Or classical. But I can't novel to music! Guess it's John Cage again.
- Favorite books or authors:
- The Cider House Rules, Hotel New Hampshire, Watership Down, A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian, Onward and Upward, Brave New World - Why can't I put non-fiction here?, John Irving, Marina Lewycka, Arabella Weir, Aldous Huxley, George Orwell - I should update this, but I really prefer non-fiction.
