Time to Write

I’m very pleased to say I have been accepted onto the Time to Write programme run by Paper Nations, a scheme to support people struggling with their writing practice.

Unfortunately, writing has fallen down the list in the last couple of years as family and other commitments have taken priority. I never even considered applying for any kind of help, but when I read about Time to Write, it seemed to relate very closely to my circumstances.

I made the application back in December when the coronavirus was just a speck on the horizon. Ironically, I now have quite a lot of time to write (although it’s still a challenge in my household), but I’m immensely grateful for the opportunity to develop my writing and see where I can take it.

All writers who were accepted onto the programme have been asked to write a response to the crisis we are facing, in particular, the aspect of isolation. I’ve just begun to give this some thought and am hashing out a few ideas.

I’m really excited to get going on it and feel thankful to have a project to focus on in these unnerving times.

Look forward to sharing what I’ve come up with further down the line!

  1. Congratulations, Alex. Look forward to your response. Will it include den building? I have noticed you like to physically create things as well as the more ephereal written word. A lot that is intangible amongst the tangible at the moment. Best of luck with your commission.

    1. Thanks very much. I have Gayle to thank as she let me know about it.
      It may do! I have a couple of ideas whirling about and am excited to get started. Feel very grateful for the opportunity and it’s the perfect time to knuckle down on a project (if I can tear myself away from dens and volcanos).
