Inspiration

This month John Baker is tackling the age-old question of 'inspiration' by running a series of pieces by writers describing how they create a text. Mine appeared yesterday.

I was reading your post at John Baker's blog and was struck by several things:
because my gestation periods have been so long, I usually write very quickly and with very few drafts, but there are still stages involved of course.

Yes! I keep on being told that a writer is supposed to write "shitty first drafts" but I was a tech writer for so long, and the ideas have been fermenting....it's great to see this validated
guess so many writers are only happy when they’re writing and so miserable when they’re not).
I live to write and find that I'm much better company when taken away from a project

I tried being a recluse but it didn't work...
