Tell us a little about yourself.
I totally agree about politics. I also agree about avoiding the news; trouble is l don't, but I do try because too much reality can be as much of a threat to the imaginative mind as the imaginative mind is to reality. I think this is what happened to me, I became too interested in the real world to create imaginary ones, even the novel I did write was based mainly on what I knew was going on in the world, like climate change and technology, than anything purely imaginative. Nevertheless, it is, as they say, always best to write about what you know, but this can also limit you. Anyway, to say more about this maxim of writing, and answer the questions in your message etc, I'll PM you tomorrow.
