MANIFESTO FOR WRITING
(Evolutions: 2002, 2012, 2016)

• Be mindful of the moments: like atoms, they make up everything
• A kiss is never to be taken lightly — so write it in everything
• Take space to breathe
• Writing is a rush
• All words are right, in some way
• Never let those dreams go — dreams make us sad and whole, broken and missing, lost
• Be in love with love
• All love is valid — it all weighs in the same: bank it
• Let your lostloves and neverfounds sink you somedays — it’s OK
• Read and re-read your words; love them and cherish them like gems of light
• Never, on no account, ever burn or throw away your words
• All words are right — know this
• You are an artist — despite what may be said
• Art is a way of living
• Treat your notebooks like relics
• Write your words in any manner that suits your mood
• Be confident in knowing what illuminates you
• Share your moments of beauty with those who know what moments of beauty are
• Beauty is in ache and stretch, in lament and love
• Nothing is ever finished
• We, and our stories, are comprised of layers and glass
• Everything connects
• All stories are true
• Texture and rhythm in weaves and depths
• Lush loved words
• Collect, collate, clip
• Writings in concurrent states of becoming
• Infusions of magic: of the real and of the imagined
• Overlaps, circlings, returns within and in between the body of work
 
 
Regarding non-fiction, my writing in this respect is focused on my on-going work with children in the field known as ‘playwork’.
