Equine Panic

I’m sitting in café Nero, and there are babies everywhere, and the air conditioning is broken. I can’t write, because there is a little blonde boy running in front of me, squeaking.

So I’m reading Love’s Executioner – the title seems apt. It’s about a therapist and his bizarre experiences with various patients.

My new novel is progressing. The main character is called Chester, who smokes a pipe with cherry tobacco; he has a horse phobia.

It’s fun giving him a horse phobia. If you’re going to give a character an irrational fear or an anxiety based illness, it’s best to give them something original, and strange.

Something unexpected.

If you want to make a character more interesting – give him a phobia (and make it a strange one).
