I’ve recently been getting stuck into a new project that has been at the back of my mind for about 4 or 5 years now. It’s based on the life of a Spanish poet. “Lorca!” I hear someone cry. Well no, it isn’t, but it is set in Spain in the 1920’s and 30’s. I’ve done a fair bit of research on the subject now and am moving more into the creative side of the process, which is the most enjoyable and satisfying part of writing a book. It will probably be a novella or play (consisting of a series of monologues). I haven’t settled on the format yet. It’s new territory for me in that it has a historical rather than contemporary setting. Therefore it contains no autobiographical content, and no football either, which might come as a relief to others as well as myself.
