april 2013

After last month’s experimentation with an unfamiliar genre, April sees a return to a style that comes more naturally. “A Thaw for Lonely” is a story that epitomises the way I like to write – a quiet examination of the interior world that we all traverse … personal thoughts, aspirations and emotions. Perhaps an insight into how others live and what makes us different but also so united through human experiences.

Inspired initially by an interview on BBC 6 Music with Amanda Palmer of The Dresden Dolls who said she’d had “some intense things happen” when she’d worked as a living statue street performer, “A Thaw for Lonely” is about human isolation and connection. I hope you’ll visit the ‘short stories‘ page and listen to or read it when you have the time. It’s a story that I feel represents my writing well.
