Waiting for spring to kick in, feeling lethargic and overwhelmed. I am moving on the 26th March and a bit in denial. Looking forward to the Easter break, though most of it will involve unpacking, haven’t written anything for a little while and really need to get something out. Already started on the second collection, even though the first one isn’t out as yet……the jacket has been finalised and it’s about to go to print, it’s like an overdue baby. Talking of which, little Maja, who is not so little anymore has turned into the most funniest, cheekiest little person ever ( I guess all parents say that about their own children) but she really has. She keeps asking me “what I am doing?” all the time. O.K I know that is not funny or that cheeky, it’s just those are the words I associate with her at the moment, them and “Go away” another term she has skillfully picked up – But from whom…?
It’s been a while…..

the most difficult thing about beginning blogging is the deafening silence that meets your first posts. When I began, back in 2008, it took a long old time for anyone to read it, or me to feel as if people were reading it (and then, well, it went a bit nuts when the American and Australian right-wing climate denialists picked up something I wrote… but you don’t want to go there!)
Anyway, my advice would be blog because you like doing so rather than because you hope other people will like you doing so, blog as a challenge to yourself to improve your public writing style, and blog weekly, and link to other blogs in each post to encourage those other writers to come in and say something.
Looking foward to a book coming from this blog in the new year x
Thanks Alex. My new years resolution is to blog weekly and try not to give myself a hard time if I don’t (though inevitably I will).
