On Wednesday I went to the Creative Exchange launchpad event at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester. I’ll start by saying that MOSI was a great venue, and looked like a really interesting museum – I was quite disappointed that I didn’t have time to look round it. The event was, in a word, good. I made eight pages of scrawled notes, and I only wrote down things that were interesting.

I’ll start by talking about a book that seemed to me, in a number of ways, to be about endings, and how it caught me off guard.
A couple of months ago I read what is currently the latest Discworld novel – ‘Snuff’, by the esteemed Sir Terry Pratchett. It took me considerably longer than I expected, but I think that’s my fault, not the book’s. It was about goblins and tobacco and death, and it was good.
