How long is a piece of string? How long, is a goodbye?
It depends, seems like the most reasonable answer. I’m moving and I’ll be without laptop and internet for the forseeable future, although I’m sure I’ll find somewhere to get online and stay up to date with all my favourite blogs. I’m not sure what WordPress is like on my mobile; I’ll still be writing though, keeping it analogue with a pen and pad.
Posts will be erratic, although I have scheduled some, so I’ll get back to you just with a slight delay.
I’ve heard horror stories of blogs disappearing into the abyss after a few weeks inactivity…I may have made that up, or I may be having early withdrawal symptoms.
Seems a good time to have a little recap:
It’s been a fun year so far writing wise. A couple books in the can, but no publisher yet. Quite a lot of short stories written and lots of activity on the blog. Instead of leaving projects half-finished like I would have a few years ago I’m taking things through to completion. Equally good is the fact I have found the ability to revamp old stories that were once left to rot. I once had some puritanical obsession with leaving a piece of writing as is, that any editing compromised the artistic integrity – what a load of shite. Editing is everything. All in all I’ve learnt a lot about the writing process through experience and reading other bloggers trials and tribulations too.
The rest of the year will be editing, re-editing, sending out short stories and kidnapping a literary agent if necessary.
A big thank you to all the regular visitors. I’ll miss reading everyone’s posts, and will catch up soon.
