In Prague in 1995 we took shelter from a sharp August rainstorm in a brightly colored bookshop with a small beautiful case of English language books, and because I’m me I pulled the one off the rack that had a picture of a wizard on it. He didn’t... Hat slightly rumpled but acceptable. And I didn’t know what to make of the giant turtle on the cover, or the man beside the wizard in straw hat, Hawaiian shirt, sunglasses, with camera. But I opened the book, and when the rainstorm passed I shuffled out reluctantly onto cobblestone Prague streets, and spent the rest of the day convincing my folks—while waiting for a concert of Mozart’s Requiem in an out-of-the-way and beautiful... I, being eleven in a foreign country, barely noticed the author’s name, because of course they have different authors in Foreign, and it is impossible to order books from bookstores, and even if I did order, what money would I use to buy it. I... A copy of Only You Can Save Mankind , stumbled upon in the deep throes of Wing Commander addiction, got me laughing—and thinking about the cost of this play at digital war. But of course I didn’t remember the author’s name of that one either. Good Omens was the book that did it for.
Destinations: Celebrity goes to a few exotic destinations (most notably Antarctica) but for the most part, the ships travel to classic ports in the Caribbean, Europe, Alaska, Canada/New England, Hawaii and the Pacific. 2 miles from the Port of Miami is the SpringHill Suites by Marriott Miami Arts Health District hotel. This sevenfloor hotel offers 198 guest rooms and features complimentary breakfast, lobby coffee, fitness facilities, business services and concierge services. Guest rooms feature two queen beds, coffee/tea maker, microwave, refrigerator, alarm clock radio, hair dryer, digital television service, Internet access, work desk and a sofa bed. Complimentary shuttle service to the Port of Miami is available. And once you’ve worked on a cruise ship experiencing glorious weather most of the time, you tend to get a bit of a phobia for the cold and dread going home in the winter months.
When I first read Vikki Wakefield’s post, I sent her a very long email. But the one thing I forgot to say was, Thank you. So thank you, Vikki. It reminded me that there’s writing, and then there’s not writing. If you love Vikki’s words and are greedy for more of them, like me, and you want to know more about her writing process, your wish is granted, because she will be Writer-in-Residence at Inside a Dog for the whole month of April. Okay, here’s Friday’s gift, courtesy of Vikki Wakefield. I started writing ‘seriously’ (by that I mean I turned up, regularly, with the aim of finishing something for once in my life) in 2009 in our crowded meals area, next to the lounge-room. My ancient PC was perched on a narrow student desk on wheels, three feet away from the TV, Wii and PlayStation. Somehow, I finished my first novel at that tiny desk, under fire from the surround sound system, dodging missiles thrown at my head. We were never a civilised enough family to share meals there, so it was wasted space. I bought a second-hand desk and a filing cabinet. the window was a distraction, so I turned my desk to face a brick wall. When my youngest started school I had more time to write but, after a while, I found that I missed noise.
