Hello world!

Thursday, May 29th, 2008

Well, this is it! Hurling myself into the 21st century’s favourite new game, with everyone’s good advice ringing in my ears and distracting me. (“Don’t say too much.” “Keep it clever.” Yeah, right.)

I aim to write something on the blog every week, at least for six months or so, to see how it all goes. What do I plan to talk about? Well, certainly about my writing – I’m just starting a new book so there ought to be lots to say, although to be honest I’m unsure how much of that to share. (How much could anyone else want to know about the anxiety and excitement and avoidance techniques that writers suffer?) About things I’ve loved or that make me cross; about adventures and diversions, and books and films and plays and music, and good jokes, if I meet any. 

We’ll see – me, as much as anyone else who stumbles across this. I’m looking forward to trying it out, and I hope you’ll join me from time to time.
