how to write — part two

It took me a few years, really over ten years, to write and finish editing my first novel, Blue, which I finished in my thirties. I had started in in London when I was maybe 20, while I was reading the Iliad, and Ulysses, etc. I ended up writing many fragments and starts, shorts, and while I was drinking etc. I was not really able to finish much, but eventually I decided to stitch the fragments together for Blue.
