It's been a while. A gap in blog posts was always likely given my history, but there we go. I didn't do it deliberately. At least, the rational part of me didn't do it deliberately. It was the part of me that's not making progress with the book. Blogging is... Continue reading

I haven't blogged in a while because I've been away. It's not an excuse (life's too short for excuses); it's just the reality of my working life at the moment. But a self-funded business development trip to Hong Kong was a great opportunity to soak up the essence of a... Continue reading

Isabel, Thanks for the comment and your interest. I'll look out for your own observations on the process - we're all in this together, as they say. As for the regular comments, we'll have to see - my record isn't great. It's a useful prop to the revision process, though.

I've written a book and it's not very good. There, I said it. I'm giving it one last chance, because I have reason to believe that it has some redeeming features. I have plenty of other things to do if it doesn't work out, but it's been a saga and... Continue reading

Emma, Belatedly I've discovered your blog and its enjoyably chewy posts (as if 2 trips to FoW in York and a Twitter follow weren't enough of a prompt). I've timed it well too, as I'm now going to you use some of these points in some upcoming revision work. I will undoubtedly be back for more pointers before long (fending off mid-revision alcoholism etc.).
