On Writing

Turn up for work.
Never stop when you are stuck.
Love what you do.
Be honest with yourself.
Don’t hold onto poor work.
Take no notice of anyone you don’t respect.
Take no notice of anyone with a ­gender agenda.
Be ambitious for the work and not for the reward.
Trust your creativity.
Enjoy this work.
