‘Writers like to sleep late, they like to read the newspaper slowly, they like to have long lunches, and they hate to write.’ So wrote a Sunday newspaper journalist, and I’ve found it hard to disagree with him. I love having written, but can find 1001 other things to do when faced with a blank screen.

Despite that, here are some of my features published in recent and not-so recent times.
