Writing. It's a bit like being in a dream state. When I am on a writing roll (not ham and cheese, although I do quite like smoked salmon and cucumber) I am completely immersed in the place and people I am writing about, and when I emerge, and for a while afterwards, I sometimes feel as though I am in the 'wrong place'. You know like when you wake up after a particularly enthralling dream and you can't quite remember what is real? As if, when I am writing, I actually am those people, in that place, and when I'm not I have to readjust to being me. And still not married to Tony Robinson. Huh.
