It's raining, and it's a Saturday morning, and the pressing task is to do the final edits on the page proofs of 'Ten Steps to a Bedtime Story', which are long overdue. The answer to the niggling problem there, curiously enough, came to me as I opened my eyes first thing. Shift the disclaimer to its proper place; bring a 'step' forward. I say 'curiously enough', because answers usually wait until I'm in the shower with shampoo in my eyes before coming to me.
Which is why I'm sitting here with wet hair and an A4 pad next to me covered in scribbles. I made it out of the shower, but couldn't wait for the 'information superhighway' to open up before me. Time between pressing on-button and being able to type is still a lot longer than time between taking lid off pen and starting to scribble. Does that make me an old-fashioned writer as well?
