Sue Moorcroft - One Thing I've Learnt..


One thing I’ve learnt is to value my friends.

It’s all too easy to think that keeping my head down over my work is the best way to productivity. Not so! Creativity doesn’t always thrive in solitude. Maybe I need other emotional perspectives; maybe it’s natural in a storyteller to always being on the look out for anecdotes. Or maybe it’s that friendship recharges my heart’s batteries. But half-an-hour over a cuppa with friends who amuse and interest me will send me back to my desk in a burst of energy, full of ideas and enthusiasm.

The friends are definitely the important thing. I can always scoff chocs and champagne on my own at home ...

I've really learnt to value the support of friends and family too, even if they can't always understand my attachment to imaginary people!

Absolutely agree... I love a short time with friends, either dog walking or over a coffee, and then I can start happily on my work. xx
