So, I haven’t posted any stories for a while and, as I notice that some incredibly lovely people continue to drop by (and if you’re reading this, that includes you), I thought I owed you all an apology and some flimsy attempts at excuses.
Ok, so I have definitely been a bit lazy with my writing lately but I do have a few things to say in my defence.
Firstly, I’m getting married in August – I know, I can’t believe she’ll have me either – and August has rather sneakily become very close all of a sudden.
Secondly, my school have reiterated their position that they’ll only pay me if I turn up to work and that they don’t consider ‘but I’ve got a really good idea for a short story’ as a valid reason for a personal day.
And thirdly, I’ve been spending most of my writing time on my first novel – (actually I’ve already written a couple of things of novel length but as they were unreadable bilge I don’t think they count).
I did actually start writing a short story a couple of days ago but it got a bit out of hand. It is already far too long to be called short and doesn’t seem anywhere near a conclusion – blast these undisciplined stories and their refusal to go where you tell them to. I might put it up in parts when its done although I’m not sure the blog format really lends itself to longer pieces. Otherwise, I promise to write something new shortly. Honestly.
Thank you again for dropping by. It really is very much appreciated.
