For me, the most important commodity in writing is our creativity.
Without the thought, the idea, the excitement and impetus they bring, we're lost.
But the second most important commodity is time.
Like a microcosm of life, there's so much writing to explore.
I'm currently working on a radio comedy pilot and enjoying it hugely. It's such a subtle and intriguing art, creating characters and scenes within the imagination of a soundscape.

Now please kindly excuse me. I've got all the aforementioned entertainments to get back to, and they're nagging away, like they do.

You have to prioritise where to have your fun, to give yourself the maximum scope to explore and enjoy.
