It's 18h00 and still light out. Miss France was elected Miss Univers. The French handball team just won the world series. After a week on insane Trumpness, I'm happy to celebrate. What else can we pop some champagne about?

    Ulysses for the way he plays with words (hence favorite author...), The Narnia Chronicles & any books where the children have a world of their own. Game of Thrones for the complexity of the plot (how many index cards he uses??) Dr. Suess, for the trees.

    Prefer to let rip and edit afterwards
    Your ultimate writing ambition?

    Your worst habit?
    Clicking on the browser icon when I should be writing. I'm working on it.
    Your opinion on the books industry?
    It is a tough game, but everyone does their best
    Where do you write?
    With tea, in my office with a view on wysteria (leaves all gone)..
    What else do you want Word Clouders to know? eg: do you have 9 cats / like paragliding / eat nothing but tinned fish / work in the bath / live in Kettering?
    I moved to Paris in the 90's convinced that I was going to spend my time writing for the New Yorker, then promptly got sucked into magazine publishing. I finally started writing in 2012 after kid #3, because the words couldn't stay inside anymore.

    Hello Stoked. Thanks so much for posting this, and I'm happy that you're on the mend. During a recent overall checkup my doctor saw that my iron was quite low and gave me a daily supplement, which I've been taking almost every day with a rather ...

    ... quite touched by your comment. My highest writing achievement yet. In an odd coincidence, I have been working in London today and keep looking at tower cranes and thinking about your blog. Loved that.

    I go through the Gare du Nord two or three times a week. Since your last blog, I now buy a cup of coffee and give it the the first homeless person I see (it never has time to get cold, unfortunately). Often they're French, and a brief exchange ...

    Richard that's great news (even if it lead to more existential angs)! You've applied what she said and got an even stronger work out of it. As for the railroad stories, I do think there is a market for them out there, as they're not nearly as dry as ...
