I have also vowed to do more writing and make the writing decent and unshameful. I am going to type fast and well and regularly. I shall avoid failure and humiliation. No-one is hassling me for the writing, so I am going to get someone to hassle me for it. It could help. Good luck.

...that's better. I love watching other people working harder. And good on you for spurting it all out - what is this mysterious motivating force concealed within a deadline all about? I know it from my own experience in art practice as well as observe its hold over many friends in their various disciplines. Despite being the most unproductive artist of, possibly, all time, I've even been on sabbatical from that, and have rigorously rejected every 'should' in my life for years and years and the answer I keep coming up with is - I must endeavour to stop creating an expectation in others that I may have talent, insight or something worth saying. It's almost working. (sigh - my ego is huge)

I also love the paradox of 'deep waters and swift currents'...I take it you mean the depths and the depths and not the antonymous currents that swifts make abreast the storm?

This is a fine, sporting attitude to Michaelmas term, and far better than mine, which is generally to feel like I have been tied to the tracks of the railroad that are now screaming with vibrations as the express train hurtles towards me. I used to be a binge writer, but I gave it up. Now I try to crawl through a painfully slow amount of words most days. I don't know that there's a solution.

Barry & Pete & I have decided the most direct route to good writing is a foursome at bridge and drinks. We'll be in our usual corner booth at the Cafe of All Knowledge.
