Blogging as I wait for a delayed train back to Kings Cross. I spent the afternoon at the University of Hull, where I gave a talk to a dozen bright creative-writing students. I hope I didn't depress them too much with my publishing horror stories.
But I was surprised, after the many stories I had heard about Hull, to find the city far from depressing. There was even sunshine, and the a pint of Fosters was £1.65 – a ten-minute cab ride to the station £4.50.
Makes you think!
