I’m blogging once a week at the moment but I tweet most days – links to writing resources, ‘future of the book’ stuff, new directions in education and an ongoing documentary of the travails of the writing process.
Below is a selection of my recent tweets on writing and publishing that I hope are useful. May you be well and happy.
