Conversation with myself: I’m Writing
I’m writing a story.
~No, you’re updating your blog about writing a story. Not quite the same thing.
Yes, but it’s just so dark!
No, the story.
I disturb myself sometimes.
~It means you’re getting somewhere. You’ve hit a nerve.
~Look, the things you write about aren’t a literal representation of you. We all have darkness inside us. We all think horrible things. At least you’re not doing them.
~Now, stop pissing about and get back to work.
~You’re very welcome.
As seen on the Good Blog Guide
The lovely people at New Writing South have, in their infinite wisdom, included Chez Goldberg on their Good Blog Guide. WooHoo! They’ve given me a little internet badge and everything. Dedicated to “inspiring, nurturing and connecting all kinds of creative writers across the region and beyond”, New Writing South are a brilliant resource for writers. Their workshop ‘Stop fucking about and start writing’ looks particularly good and is the kind of ethos I fully endorse 🙂 Check out all the good writerly stuff they have to offer.
