Had breakfast at the The Wolseley on Piccadilly this morning. It was full and there was a nice buzz. A good option, I reckon.

Walking back up to Portland Place, I was thinking about the qualities that go to make a good writer - or should I say a successful writer. One of the most underestimated, yet crucial is the ability to be a good finisher. Lots of people have good ideas. Many go on to make a start. Relatively few persevere to the point where they actually finish. I have three very good ideas for books. One has been commissioned, one I'm doing myself, and one I'll sit on a little longer until I can do it justice. But I am determined to finish all three.
