It doesn’t matter what the season – spring, summer, autumn, winter – I write. I find that in winter when I’m in hibernation mode, it actually helps me to be productive. I have less excuse not to be writing! When it’s horrible and cold outside, there’s nothing better than sitting snuggly with my laptop on my knee, typing away. Summer is definitely harder – I’ll be tempted to go sightseeing (since London is always full of things to do!) or go to the park. Churning out a bunch of poems/ a few short stories/ or even better, getting a draft of a manuscript done gets me through the long dark nights in autumn and winter – and of course, making a snowman. I’m proud of this one I made – he’s full of winter charisma!

My snowman jazzing up the winter days!
