Yachts are small things where space is at a premium; libraries take up a lot of room, so I have to swap and donate as I travel. This novel has been the hardest to give up. I’ve lent it and recommended it to anyone who wants to talk books or India. I’ve written about it, reviewed it and referenced it.
A Fine Balance has left the boat. But it will always be with me.
“There is no silver bullet. It’s trial and error. It’s hard work. And perseverance. And you won’t get that from any course. You’re better off finding a little community of like-minded individuals, like the Itinerant Writer’s Club, and asking for advice, ideas, comments. Plus you develop your own voice and style. Creative writing courses are like battery farms for writers. They all come out sounding the same.”
