Briefly: Want to see my new book cover? | Live dates & workshops | New bonus Sunday newsletter | Join my Patreon Community Hello, I’ve been thinking a lot, lately, about why I write. These questions raise themselves when you’re about to share new work with the world. In the last few weeks, proof copies of my latest book have been going out to my first readers. It’s terrifying. Not for the first time, I wonder why I’ve thrown everything I have at this career, rather than something more sensible and less exposing. A couple of years ago, someone went to the effort of direct messaging me on Twitter to suggest I might like to give up writing and become a librarian, because ‘it’s a good job for an autistic person’ and I ‘seem to like books quite a lot’. Maybe I shouldn’t have blocked them after all.
