Why Mouse and Muse?
The Mouse and Muse site is a bit like a virtual cupboard – but one which I can keep tidier than most real cupboards. I’m using it to store information about my writing and other work as well as taking the opportunity to keep a blog, when I feel like it. ‘The Mouse and the Muse’ was the title of a book I wrote many years ago to explore the creative use of computer technology in the teaching of English. It seems a neat way to combine the technical with the imaginative, so I’ve hung on to it.
