Creative Loving Spirit - Podcast with Paul Macauley

Ughhhhhhhhhh that's my face.

Ughhhhhhhhhh that's my face.

Paul Macauley - playwright, long-time Brighton Writers' Retreater, general all round good egg and brilliant conversationist - has started a podcast. It's called Creative Loving Spirit and is all about, well, exactly that. Paul interviews people from all walks of creative life about their processes, their inspiration, their challenges, and asks what compels us to 'do' art, in whatever form that might be. 

A few weeks ago he asked me to talk about my writing, about Writers' HQ, about giving yourself permission to do the creative thing you wanna do, whether one is ever ready to call oneself an 'artiste' (snarf), and a whole bunch of interesting stuff as we spent a few hours giggling and rambling in his kitchen.

Anywho, you can listen to it HERE, along with the many other fascinating (did I just call myself fascinating?) people Paul has interviewed for his show. YES, PAUL, YOU HAVE A 'SHOW' NOW.

Just before Christmas, Scott Mullins interviewed me for This is Writing about inspiration, fear, writing habits aaaaand sex puns. If you'd like to ask me about writing - or simply have an awkward question you'd like to challenge me with - you can do so at my Goodreads page.

You can find a lot of my short fiction online here, and a handful of other interviews here. Or dive right in and buy a copy of White Lies. I would like that a lot.
