I realised recently how often in my conversations I use the word but. It's a limiting, doubting word. "Yes, but..." - we all do it. I was thinking about not using the word in my writing any more and hadn't got much further than that when an email popped into my inbox with the following link to an interview with Neil Mularkey.
Tomorrow is the first day of my new life and I'll mark it by being the "Yes, and..." queen.
