  1. Hi. I am a filmmaking student trying to reach Barry Lee Thomson to talk about adapting one of this short stories. Can someone help me reach him? I tried the email on his website with no success.

    Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Guilherme. Thanks for getting in touch. Sorry you’ve been frustrated in your attempts to reach me. I’ve been on a writing residency overseas for the last ten days and didn’t have the usual internet access. But I returned home last night, and I’ll get to your email shortly. All the best, Barry


  2. First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before
    writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
    Many thanks!

    1. What a great question. I have – personally – great issues in this regard. However, I think we (EW) might put our collective heads together and come up with an answer! More soon.

    2. Yes, it’s a really good question. We’ve had some interesting discussions already concerning this. We all write across a variety of forms, including memoir, fiction and poetry, and our individual approaches are very different. A quick question for you: What kind of things do you like to write?

  3. Agree that it’s a great — and crucial — question. If I’ve already started something, I always have to go back and reread what I’ve already written (if it’s an 80,000 word novel — just the last few paragraphs!). But you are probably asking about the more difficult question — what do you do when staring at a blank page? Sometimes I just go ‘blah’ — write a whole lot of rubbish, then try to do something with it. Sometimes I go for a walk. And of course there are times when I suddenly have to spend most of the day tidying my desk!
