What form does your writing take? I re-write my diaries in the form of travelogues. It’s amazing what the brain can tap into when revisiting the moment. My memories flood back and I am instantly transported back to where ever I’m writing about.
How often do you write? I write whenever I can, usually at the end of a day when I know I’ve got a good couple of hours spare.
How does writing make you feel? My writing relaxes me and allows me to think about life at a deeper level.
Where/when do you write? I write using my MacBook Pro, usually on my lap with the dog nestled in beside me.
What do you write about? I am currently writing up my travels in Mumbai and Kerala last year before I’m off to India again in a few weeks time. I previously wrote up my first visit to India when I went with my son, Charlie, in 2011. We were on a family pilgrimage to Varanasi and Nainital retracing family history. It was an emotionally charged experience and it comforts me to know I have preserved my memories in print.
What’s the best thing about writing? The best thing about writing is that it makes me think.
How long have you been writing for? I have been writing on and off for years, always keeping holiday diaries.
