What type of writing do you do – or would you like to do?

I mainly write for women's magazines, but also newspapers and a few weekend supplements. I'm also an aspiring scriptwriter and am currently working on a TV comedy drama. When I say working on it, I obviously mean dreaming up what I'll say once I've achieved greatness and journalists ask me what influences my work and what I have for breakfast etc. I basically need a rocket up my arse and hope this group will inspire me.

What book do you wish you had written and why?

Vernon God Little by DBC Pierre. Such innovative use of language. Not one tired metaphor or cliché in there.

What was the last piece of writing to totally blow you away?

A piece by Charlie Brooker in today's Guardian in which he described the sky as: 'that bruise-coloured ceiling of floating misery'. I also love the blog Vagenda, which manages to be both pertinent and bloody funny.

Introduction

I'm a freelance journalist, which means a) my job is very much sofa-based and b) my colleagues are largely comprised of the voices in my head. I basically need to get out more.
