Neville Dodds
AT WRITEGALLERY (SM) SINCE MARCH 24, 2003


March 2003: I've always made my living from engineering, which is bizarre since my primary interests have always lain with the arts. Human foibles, I suppose. I live on the south coast of England, near Bournemouth, but worked for a long time in Aberdeen, Scotland, in the oil industry. I've been a member of a number of creative writing groups, of varying degrees of usefulness (my fault, not theirs, I'm sure), but the one to which I now belong has proved the most rewarding. Since there are so many members (fourteen, plus) and we meet only once a week for one and a half hours, length of pieces is limited to 500-600 words, otherwise they wouldn't all receive an airing. This has forced me to spend as much time editing pieces as creating the first draft, a discipline which I am finding increasingly useful. I'm currently working on the completion of a second novel manuscript that I started about fourteen years ago (the first manuscript we won't dwell on at all). I suppose if I have an aim, it's to have a novel published, but more than that, I'd like it to be something at which I could look back without suffering cold sweats. Here's hoping.
