I've already met three or four writers in Hendaye in the first three months. Some are journalists, some historians, others novelists. Some write in French, others in Spanish, Basque or English. Yesterday I started thinking could we set up a club, along the lines of the Brussels Writer's Circle - which has enormously helped me move forward as a writer, and more importantly to think of of myself as a writer - for us to come together, support or criticise each other, maybe read our work in public or run workshops?
Problem is that I find it hard enough to find and join associations in France, let alone to create one. I want to contribute to my new adopted community. This seems to be the logical way forwards.
