Friday #amwriting by Emma Baird

“How are you getting on with your writing today?”

Oh, the dreaded question asked as always by a person with no empathy or understanding of how the creative mind works!

So far, I have used desperation as my inspiration – or more likely, scraping the bottom of the barrel. The Great British Bake Off inspired a crude comparison of certain products with cakes. The rest has been nicked from various websites, the Huffington Post, Wikipedia and the Guardian among them.

“Fine.”

“Good. Another two articles and I’ll pay you.”

I sigh, get imaginative with my search engine queries and carry on.
