Been a while…

Yes. I know. Too long, yes.

But but but… what can I say? Am I the only one who comes home after work, not interested in firing up my laptop after a day of staring at computer screens? Writing is one of my hobbies but not the only one; I also like watching a good film, do a bit of gardening, oh, and my imitation of a spud is famous, too..

So, what’s new then that I decided to post a new blog? Dunno… I thought it was the decent thing to do, posting a new blog after all this time. For the interested ones of course. Normally, I wouldn’t post unless I deem the subject worth commenting to but this post is an exception to the rule. In my own little way, I’m apologising for being absent as long as I have been. So, apologies, followers. There! I said it.

Can we get back to the daily drama now? Thank you! What’s happened lately? Not much, I can tell you. The writing has come to a complete stand-still; My muse seems to have taken a sabattical, and the all too well known Writers’ Community isn’t really beckoning anymore either.. Not in the least place due to one person who trolled the place in several guises, and is now playing the sweet innocent, claiming to be the victim. Sorry, but I don’t have time for that sort of “entertainment”, nor do I have any appreciation for the way things are dealt with by the moderators. Luckily, I can hide behind the fact that work is hectic, and will remain that way for the foreseeable time but, admitted, it sounds very much like a cop-out as it wasn’t like that all the time, and it won’t stay like that forever.. No excuse really justifies the stagnation.

So far for my little moan. Exposure, in any which way, is important if you want to make it as a writer, which is why I am still a registered user at this certain Community as it attracts the likes of Agents and Publishers.

“Is your writing good enuff to be noticed by aforementioned?” I for one, would like to think so (this is just me being biased); I’ve had some nice comments on it, but I could do with it being scrutinised by an Agent or Publisher. Just so I know whether writing is my thing, or whether I should stick to posting silly blogs and forget about the writing thing altogether…

Anyway… Feel free to have a read here and judge for yourself.

I’ll try to keep the posts coming more regular from here on but I ain’t promising or committing to anything.

Happy Reading & Writing!
