Fear and Creative Copywriting
Fear gets a bad rep.
Fear prevents atrophy. It keeps us moving, and offer us the opportunity to choose a direction.

Fear made me buy strangers’ stories for £1.
Fear got me a writing job for Australia’s most notorious rock star.
Fear made me write a blog that’s been read by 500,000 people worldwide.
Fear drives me to create content that’s gained me 40,000 followers in the last year.
Fear got me two agents.
Fear made me cancel my Netflix account.
Fear made me take up running.
Fear made me leave London and come back to Bristol.
Fear tells me what I love, and how to get it.
Fear precedes fearlessness.

I Will Pay One Pound For Your Story
I stand in a public, in Greenwich, or Brixton, or Camden, holding a sign. The sign reads I WILL PAY ONE POUND FOR YOUR STORY. I buy and record stories from the public. I transcribe the stories faithfully capturing the teller's accent, dialect and speech patterns, creating a unique and vivid portrait of the UK and its inhabitants.
I've collected stories about lost comrades, panthers hunting children in the Himalayas, love lost and found over thirty years, finding God through LSD, escape from a religious cult...all from the same people you encounter every single day.
I'm currently distilling the collection into an anthology of the one hundred most compelling stories I've collected from all over Britain – including The Armed Robber, The Dancer, and The Soldier.
