Hello everyone, if any of my followers are still hanging around. I apologise for my extended absence; life went pear shaped for quite a while, and I have spent the last couple of months wondering how to make an entrance again.
I am assuming that I will have to start again from scratch, and this seems like a good time to announce some changes in the direction of my blog.
I no longer feel like a beginning writer and I don’t want to continue writing exclusively about my writing process. I am at the stage in my writing career where I am more interested in writing about the things that concern me, and will be using my blog as a platform to stretch my muscles in the areas of opinion and creative non-fiction. This may also sometimes include reflections on the writing process, but generally my interests range over many topics with a focus on how they play out in political, public and spiritual realms. For those who are interested, I am fond of writing that makes people think. I would appreciate feedback on how well I’m achieving this, as well as comments on what I actually write about.
Eventually, I’ll be moving my blog over onto wordpress.org. A friend will be helping me to build a website platform with the intention of building a shop into my site. Short stories will be released for sale, both as niche collections and individually, as well as small collections of poetry. It will potentially have a new name, probably just my author name, with a sub-heading. I’ll be launching an author page on Facebook at the same time.
Until those bigger changes happen though, I hope any old followers of mine who still remain will continue to engage with and enjoy my posts, and I’d like to welcome anyone new who jumps on board.
