I am always fascinated by the fiction writers ability to keep the story in their heads… I enjoyed the tips from PD James… and hope you do to.

I especially liked #6 as it also could pertain to an artists life.

6. Enjoy your own company: It is undoubtedly a lonely career, but I suspect that people who find it terribly lonely are not writers. I think if you are a writer you realise how valuable the time is when you are absolutely alone with your characters in complete peace. I think it is a necessary loneliness for most writers – they wouldn’t want to be always in the middle of everything having a wonderful life. I’ve never felt lonely as a writer, not really, but I know people do.”
