Regular readers of this blog will know about two weeks ago I did an interview with a journalist while I had the flu. The journalist in question had written a first chapter and synopsis and wanted my advice. I had promised and so I did it. I think I held myself together and sounded coherent. After we finished chatting, I collapsed.
In the intervening time, I have sat and worried -- had I made sense? Had I committed a Violet Winspear type faux pas that would haunt me for the rest of my career?
Tanya Gold who can write and write very well but has no desire to be any sort of novelist has had the article published in the Guardian today, so you can judge for yourself.
Some day, Ms Gold will win a British Press award but I'm not sure about meeting a gorgeous media tycoon as they do all seem to look like Rupert Murdoch!
