How Did This Happen?

Two months.

Two months since I last posted!

When I set this blog up, I thought I'd be one of those guys who posts stuff every other day. Every week, at least. I've got lots of things to say, I reasoned - get them out on virtual paper and let the world ignore them if it wants.

And then along came real life.

Work, relationships, illness - all that stuff. And two months later, no posts.

Not much writing done either. One short story (6000 words) that took about 4 weeks to finish. Another sent off to Apex Digest of Science Fiction and Horror. Really, it's not good enough.

And in that time, I've missed out on complaining about some new rail announcements ('Hustle alarms' anyone?), on letting the world know what my most hated advert is (I'll give you a clue - it involves Pentapeptides), and on complaining about the creation of non-words in cinema advertising (United 93 - an absolutely excellent movie - is said to contain 'scenes of terrorisation').

See what you missed??
