Absolutely @raine. Where does the guilt come from? Because come it does. Every time someone asks me what I’m up to and I have to admit to spending most of my spare time writing but, no, it’s not published. And, yes, I have spent the last seven years doing this. I try to rationalise it by thinking of lots of perfectly acceptable but equally unprofitable things I could be doing – like playing golf with no possibility of ever winning the Masters, or painting pictures that I’d never sell, or dusting (which everybody knows is a time-wasting and pointless activity that brings no rewards).
