My writing – April and May 2019
I tend to post links to the articles I’ve written on social media. Every piece of writing has something to say, but I may not have lots to say about every article. Often, the key point I’m making is in the article itself. So I’m putting the links here so you can read ones you missed, or find them again if you enjoyed them.
- Terry Pratchett’s greatest adaptations (Hero Collector). Ahead of the Good Omens adaptation dropping on Prime on 31 May.
- Thoughts on bank holiday working (AllThingsIC). A guest post on Rachel Miller’s blog, providing more nuance to my old 2012 rant about this topic. Published ahead of the late May bank holiday (aka Whitsun) here in the UK.
- The temporary Commons chamber is a missed opportunity to change Britain’s political culture (New Statesman ‘staggers’ blog). One of two pieces about architecture in the news, which has surprised me as a topic I can write about. Turns out that degree in history of art, design and film gave me the necessary grounding to enjoy this kind of writing.
- Why do we find cathedral fires so disturbing? (Citymetric site). I’d been thinking about a different pitch entirely when I saw the news of the Notre Dame fire.
- Where is Line of Duty set? On a plausible liminal city (Citymetric). After this, my timeline would light up with tweets about more clues every Sunday night. Given I really love how Line of Duty has created this ‘everycity’, I’m not complaining. I also have a new theory, but I’m saving that until season 6 starts.
