Well, today was a new experience - local radio interview. Sporting a virus, a cold sore and an intestine knotted with anxiety, I made my way to the studio in Brighton this morning having no idea what to expect. The thing is, I'm a slow thinker. Would I be able to come up with witty responses? Would I be able to think on my feet? (well I was sitting down with headphones and an intimidating microphone). I needn't have worried. Graeme Johnstone made me feel very relaxed and what I realised was … I really like talking about writing. All in all, a great experience. 

If interested, the link is here. I'm about 65 mins in.
