I read in one of her recent obituaries that Muriel Spark had once said that all her books were really fictionalised accounts of her life. That cheered me up immensely because that's exactly what my books are. Until that moment I had considered this aspect of my writing a weakness. Not any more. If it's good enough for Muriel Spark it's certainly good enough for me.
In fact I think I'll call my next book The Prime of Mr Bill Liversausage. I'm sure no-one would guess it was all about me. Be a pretty short book though. Might be better as a short story. Set in the future.
