Sunset from the deck, tonight.
I never get more excited than when I'm working on a new piece of writing, followed perhaps by a new knitting design. The creative process. It's wonderful. Nowhere else in life can this thrill and excitement be sustained and for so long. It must be the same for all artistes whatever the medium.
The complete forgetfulness of self.
I have a couple of stories on the go and a concept for another musical drama which is filling my mind at the moment.
I get these little frissons around them - not fear - but of the excitement itself, as if sometimes I can hardly believe my absolute good fortune in doing exactly what I dreamed of doing when I was a very small child.
And I'm simply blown away that this has all come to me so late in life and is filling it with such passion.
