Twitter for iPhone : I stuck up my early rejection letters on my kitchen wall, because every writer I admired got rejected initially and now I finally had something in common with them. No time spent doing what you love and learning to do it better is ever wasted. Make 2022 your year! βœοΈπŸŽ‰βœοΈπŸŽ‰βœοΈπŸŽ‰

Twitter Web App : Today, I reread the first 14k words of my new book and thought 'that's got to go... that's woeful... what the hell were you thinking there?' I'd advise putting it away for a full month, then taking it out again and wielding the scalpel with precision. In short, you're not alone.

Twitter Web App : Thank you, wonderful person (I've purposely obscured your name, because... well, we all know why). This was a beautiful early Christmas present and I wish you a fantastic 2022 as well. ❀️

Twitter Web App : I agree, it isn't helpful to remain fixated on our trauma: what was done to us is not us, not our essential self. But my favourite art explores the things that lurk half-hidden in our psyches. I find fear fascinating - my own and other peoples - and I suspect I always will.

Twitter Web App : I have very vivid nightmares. The dementors came from a nightmare I had when I was young. Just this week I had a nightmare I think might make an excellent plot. Colette wrote: 'Look for a long time at what pleases you, and a longer time at what pains you.' Good advice.

Twitter Web App : Funnily enough, I'd never seen The Exorcist until this year. I think if I'd seen it when it first came out it would have terrified me, but having seen all the parodies (French and Saunders πŸ˜‚) really took the edge off.
