I gave a talk on adaptation – the process of transferring stories between different media – at an ACW conference in Leeds last weekend. Had a wonderful time meeting old and new friends. Other speakers included Corin Child giving tips on taking opportunities to promote your own writing and Steve and Mandy Briars on getting books into bookshops. One of the delegates summed up what he’d learned during the day:
- Get rid of the loincloth
- Write in your pyjamas
- Sleep with a skeleton
- Some church people misunderstand writers
Now I’m going to be a real tease and not explain any of that!
