writes about clothes, shoes, hair, make-up, accessories, fashion - anything that's appearance-related, and a good deal else, because appearances are just the beginning.

On the road again
In the metaphorical sense, anyway. I'd like to be able to say, next stop Canada, but in fact it will be Auckland, San Franscisco, Calgary, Winnipeg, with mind-numbing lay-overs of several hours between connections. Never was the term "long haul" so apt. By the weekend, though, I hope to be lounging in the sun by - perhaps even swimming in - a lake that looks something like this one. Only perhaps not quite so close to the snow.
I'm a writer. Sometimes I write fiction and sometimes I'd rather do something else, like earn money, travel or dance tango. Whatever I do, I never stop looking. So this blog is about looking to write, writing to see, and seeing to think. I was once the kind of feminist who believed it was wrong to delight in such things. Now I'm the kind of feminist who doesn't believe that at all. I will never, as Linda Grant puts it, go beige into that good night.
