NOTICEBOARD SNIPPET #8



"You can't write all day long and you shouldn't, perhaps, write every day, unless you're a novelist." John Montague

in an (irritating*) interview with Éamon Dunphy on RTÉ Radio 1, on JM's 80th birthday, last Saturday, the 28th February.

* Irritating because as soon as John was about to elaborate a point, or say something interesting, Dunphy cut across him...

Re JM interview: not sure if you are a Dunphy fan but I was shouting a thte radio for him to shut up. See what you think...

Yes, the MH story is haunting me still. A good sign, I guess!
