Sample text

People’s attitude to writing and the writing process Attitudes vary: I hate it. But then, there’s nothing else I’d rather do! A real love-hate relationship. I often feel when I’m having one of those days when I can’t even produce a sentence that I can’t do it and shouldn’t be putting myself through the agony.

This response had taken eight months. I promptly rewrote and reformatted the article for a different journal and sent it off. They acknowledged its receipt by return of post.
