I stuck up my early rejection letters on my kitchen wall, because every writer I admired got rejected initially and now I finally had something in common with them. No time spent doing what you love and learning to do it better is ever wasted. Make 2022 your year! ✍️🎉✍️🎉✍️🎉 https://t.co/3PREXJTLfu

Using the words ‘sex’ and ‘gender’ interchangeably obscures the central issue of this debate.

If you’re interested in what I actually said, see https://t.co/zRoACFakEn (in which I literally say ‘trans lives matter’ and ‘trans rights are human rights.’)

The question at the heart of this debate is whether sex or gender identity should form the basis of decisions on safeguarding, provision of services, sporting categories and other areas where women and girls currently have legal rights and protections. 2/3

Small but important point: I’ve never said there are only two genders. There are innumerable gender identities. 1/3 https://t.co/szCHOwoP4i

They are infuriating, aren't they? I think that's one reason I love writing them so much! https://t.co/AMs2iwaUgd

I have a plan for Strike and Robin and that's all I wish to say on the matter at the present time. https://t.co/FAEkWWjDTt

Today, I reread the first 14k words of my new book and thought 'that's got to go... that's woeful... what the hell were you thinking there?' I'd advise putting it away for a full month, then taking it out again and wielding the scalpel with precision. In short, you're not alone. https://t.co/up69ZWnwRF

Thank you, wonderful person (I've purposely obscured your name, because... well, we all know why). This was a beautiful early Christmas present and I wish you a fantastic 2022 as well. ❤️ https://t.co/a8D3njuT5L

I agree, it isn't helpful to remain fixated on our trauma: what was done to us is not us, not our essential self. But my favourite art explores the things that lurk half-hidden in our psyches. I find fear fascinating - my own and other peoples - and I suspect I always will. https://t.co/yQO4BFBMtN

I have very vivid nightmares. The dementors came from a nightmare I had when I was young. Just this week I had a nightmare I think might make an excellent plot. Colette wrote: 'Look for a long time at what pleases you, and a longer time at what pains you.' Good advice. https://t.co/lGCYidBaTC

Funnily enough, I'd never seen The Exorcist until this year. I think if I'd seen it when it first came out it would have terrified me, but having seen all the parodies (French and Saunders 😂) really took the edge off. https://t.co/0tFzoSSn4U

Who wouldn't have been excited to be near Gregory Peck? (Answer: my daughter. She also mocked me for thinking he was a devastatingly handsome man.) https://t.co/GzZtG2UKzd
