The most sensible commentary I’ve heard in this General Election 2015 campaign…

‘Britain’s criminally stupid attitudes to race and immigration are beyond parody’ – Frankie Boyle, The Guardian, Monday 20th April 2015.

To mark the passing of the legendary Percy Sledge…

I can’t begin to describe the feelings I get when I hear ‘When A Man Loves A Woman’. It is one of the first pop songs I ever heard at about the age of four. We had an old compilation tape that I think my mother got by saving up the back of cereal packets (in those days we had no money for cassettes by any other means), and the song was played over and over and over again. It’s such a part of my memories of being a child, and is one of the things in this world where when I experience it, I can feel a glimmer of how I felt at that moment in my life as a child. It transports me to and connects me to childhood me. That’s one hell of a gift, isn’t it?

Percy, thank you. May you now dwell forever in the place you were hoping for. Rest in peace.

You can spend days looking at a blank page, and for a writer that is the worst type of torture…

… And then when something comes, anything, whether it’s about what you intended to write or not – when it comes and it feels true, or even just somewhat true to what you’re feeling, the days you’ve wasted dissolve like the point of a match. That’s the life of the writer.
