Still Here

I did say I'd be quieter, but I've been really quiet - sorry about that.

Writing - zero
Reading - some of the latest edition of Yellow Mama but nothing else either online or in book form. When I logged in today, I had over 130 new items in my google reader!
Cricket - we won the first game of the season! Woot.
Secret project - didn't look at it over the weekend.
Day job - busy.

I apologise for my absence. My congratulations to Nat, Aaron, L.R, Laura, Cate, Barry, Jason, Mercedes and everyone else I'm sure to have forgotten on their recent publications. Keep going D, the edits will be worth it and Butterflies will be wonderful (hope you've recovered from your fall). KC, I'm in awe at how fast Bell-Men has come together. Katey, enjoy your music, family and life - the writing will come back when it's ready. Alan (1), enjoy your time going into the wild. Alan (2), everyone needs a Renaissance Man; I'm glad you found one (and remember that writing is all about persistence).

That's it from me for now. Call this a heart beat post, just so you know I still have one.


  1. We await your triumphant return. Until then I am going to drink and play wii.

  2. Great to hear that you haven't fallen off the earth. Take all the time you need.

  3. Congrats on winning your cricket! The most darling name for a sport EVER.

  4. I don't know the first thing about cricket either, but Woot for your team.

  5. Ohhh cricket-- congratulations!

    And I'm glad to hear you have a heartbeat still. Looking forward to, as Jamie says, your triumphant return. May the days be productive :D

  6. Thanks everyone.

    Nat, you always make me smile. Many would not consider standing 22 yards away from someone hurling a 152 ounce ball at over 70Mph at you while you only have a narrow piece of wood to protect yourself darling - but it works for me!

    Katey - one day we shall meet and we must have drinks, bbq and talk all about sport and writing - I think our partners need to get along as we'll be lost for hours!

  7. I imagine it being played by giant insects wearing top hats.
