Filling up the well

This year on Future of Long Form (FLF) I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing over 20 different experts. Across 21,000 words in 2013 (include 2012 and it’s over 42,000!). I’ve written and researched on the challenges and practicalities of publishing and promoting long form non-fiction. And I’ve shared with you some of the pitfalls in the process (both directly and indirectly!).

Every now and then a writer needs to take time to fill up the well. I'm going to take December and plan to visit this very well. Thanks to cleber for use of this image  Zen Garden - Ryoanji under Creative Commons.

I’ve loved writing FLF but I’m going to take a break for the month of December. I shall return in the New Year with my ideas-well entirely filled up.
