Just been out to a little writing group in Manchester - four (usually five) women writers at Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) all aiming to write novels. It was well-organised and made me think a lot about the business of writing. I think a writer needs the company of other writers.
Tomorrow I am heading to Liverpool to meet some more writers there for lunch.
One day soon I am hoping to graduate from talking to other writers about writing to actually doing some!
