Welcome to 2017

Been a while since I posted anything. Hardly anyone noticed, because hardly anyone reads this blog. Nothing like looking reality in the face!

I have been very busy, doing lots of other things. Decorating (walls and ceilings – not cakes!), designing braking systems (somehow, people who need braking systems come to me. No idea why …?), and building furniture (my own design – not crap from Flat-Pack warehouses).

I intend to get back to my writing later. No rush. I write, and literary agents fail to reply. After all, according to that great SF writer, Theodore Sturgeon …
“90% of everything is crap!”
That must apply to my writing, and must surely apply to literary agents. Judging by the replies, 90% sounds about right.

All in all, it has been nice to take a break. I have a few thoughts in mind, but they can wait till I am ready.

The ‘festive’ season is nearly over, so, hopefully, all those shoppers who have been cluttering up the roads with their once-a-year driving trips, will put their cars away until it is time to join the summer-holiday traffic jams.

I do not believe in goodwill to all men (not those berks who are wandering around the countryside, shooting anything that flies, walks or crawls), but to the majority, I wish you joy.

Happy New Year!
