David Savill – My old tutor used to call it the writer’s disease – anxiety and panic. Maybe its all that time we spend in our own imaginations. Maybe it’s just a product of TOO MUCH THINKING. I’ve certainly found that a number of writing colleagues and Creative Writing students tend to suffer with what used to be called a ‘touch of nerves’, and in my amateur experience, it often has a lot to do with the amount of pressure we direct at ourselves. If you experience anxiety issues while studying, don’t be afraid of talking to your tutors, as well as your friends. We’re here to help!
