I know, I know, I post a lot of photos of Cardiff Bay. Can you blame me when it’s this nice?  Taken from the west side of the Taf yesterday evening as I reacquaint myself with my running routes.

Hi Mister Gaiman! I’m a young, 22 year old writer currently working on a novel that I intend to feature a strong, female lead; however, as a male, I often find myself out of my element. I was wondering if you had any suggestions—are there any books/authors you might recommend that you feel write…

Patti Smith’s advice to young artists

A writer or any artist can’t expect to be embraced by the people. I’ve done records where it seemed like no one listened to them. You write poetry books that maybe 50 people read. And you just keep doing your work because you have to, because it’s your calling.

But it’s beautiful to be embraced by the people.

Some people have said to me, “Well, don’t you think that kind of success spoils one as an artist? If you’re a punk rocker, you don’t want to have a hit record…”

And I say to them, “Fuck you!” 

One does their work for the people. And the more people you can touch, the more wonderful it is. You don’t do your work and say, “I only want the cool people to read it.” You want everyone to be transported, or hopefully inspired by it.

When I was really young, William Burroughs told me, “Build a good name. Keep your name clean. Don’t make compromises. Don’t worry about making a bunch of money or being successful. Be concerned with doing good work. And make the right choices and protect your work. And if you can build a good name, eventually that name will be its own currency.”

So, so good.

Patti Smith, I love you forever.

So do we!

Some thoughts

An early morning in Heathrow. Too many people i didn’t manage to say goodbye to. Cold water music in the travelodge. epic security check where the man asked if I had any secrets. You can’t see those on your scanner I hope, I said… The secret scanning machine. A short story I will write on the plane. See you in Thailand….
