One of my favourite rumours that went around the ship, which originated in the launderette, was that on the world cruise there were eleven bodies in the morgue. It was not true, but it amused me when I was asked. ‘So… we hear there are eleven bodies in the morgue…’
I have noticed so many people find reasons why not to do something rather than why to do that same thing. It is during the ‘shall I shant I?’ writing moments that the inner saboteur and inner critic rise and assert themselves.
