Pete, good article — I’ve never heard of the “Helsinki Bus Station Theory”, either.

I agree totally with your way of putting it, the idea that you should stay on the bus, and time will tell whether what you are pursuing is showing some promise. One day, it might all turn out to be something extremely good, but we can never know unless we stay on the bus, and keep plugging along that track.

It’s always been my thought about writing resistance, the actual physical act of sitting down and beginning is the scary bit, it means I’ll be sitting there for hours on end and just hoping this afternoon’s journey is going to worthwhile.

Thanks, Seán
