Alastair Campbell the ex-director of communications for Tony Blair and latter-day novelist, has always been known for his high-energy reserves. So it came as no surprise when he told me that he wrote parts of his first novel, and his latest book, 'Maya', on his Blackberry while he was multi-tasking on his office exercise machine. "I also work a lot on the move," he adds. "For my first novel, 'All in the Mind', a key themes which I had had difficulties with came to me as I was driving to a Burnley game on the M1. I pulled over at a service station and wrote down the "suicide scene" on my BlackBerry. It didn't change in the finished book. I also work a lot on cars and planes, and I have no trouble writing on my BlackBerry." For 'Maya', he drove around west London, to be in the neighbourhood in which his book's protagonist is based. "I decided she lived in Little Venice so I'd sit in the car outside to watch things going on and write on the BlackBerry," he says. Flashes of inspiration often come on the motorway while driving North to watch Burney FC, he says.
