The Creative Process

Part of my birthday celebrations included a gentle wander around the National Museum of Scotland, my default Edinburgh destination.  I always find something I hadn't noticed before, and this time, it was the section on Fashion, and in particular, the bit about hats.  There were some amazing hats and there was a slide show in a box, telling me about some of the work of designers Alexander McQueen and Philip Treacy.  When I saw this hat, I thought 


Both hat and hair tell you so much about what it's like to write a novel.  Well, my novels, any way.  I may not have her cheekbones, but otherwise this could be A Portrait of the Writer at Work.  Fabulous.

Yes! Even that slightly abstracted, inwardly focussed, gazing into the future look! That’s you, perfectly!

We're of a height, as well.
