So, here's some of what has kept me busy over the last few months. Incidentally, the article misquotes me slightly. What I said was that I hadn't written poetry for six months, but I was working on other kinds of fiction and non-fiction. Also, this is technically not the first play I've written. But it is the first full-length one written entirely in English.
I didn't win eventually, but the shortlist brings some reassurance. Perhaps, I'm doing what I should be doing, after all.
