Raymond Chandler

Still Inspirational Seventy Years On Since the publication of Being Tommy Boronovski last May, my time and mental energy has been absorbed by multiple non-writing projects like finding a new home. Although I have two open manuscripts -- a sequel to Being Tommy Boronovski, and a speculative piece set in 2060 -- I found that after such a long break I was struggling to find inspiration and focus, moving from one to the other and making scant progress.
