Cactus Graphic

Another great @McrLitFest event, this time with Simon Armitage & @Guy_Garvey. Wise words from SA: if you end up creating exactly what you set out to create then you’ve failed. Creating should be a process of discovery and the final work should feel slightly beyond your abilities

Loved hearing fellow Reese Witherspoon Book Club author Celeste Ng @pronounced_ing at the @McrLitFest. She had a great plotting analogy: a road trip where you make unexpected diversions/stopovers and check out early from places that weren’t as interesting as you thought they’d be

I’ve never identified with a fictional character as much as I identify with this one. ⁦@ReesesBookClub⁩ ⁦@SarahxHaywood⁩ #TheCactus #SweaterWeather
