Elanor Dymott & Alex Martin

Old fashioned camera

Elanor Dymott explains how research nearly derailed her career, and Alex Martin considers action vs. contemplation. Elanor Dymott explains how an encounter with the tangible aspects of photography, during deeply immersive research for her second novel, almost stopped her being a novelist. Alex Martin considers whether it’s better to be a man of action, or to live a more contemplative life. Or can a writer do both?
