Hello…. Goodbye….


So it’s exactly a month since I made my last post. I did continue with the Twittertales for the first week of my holiday but then I realised something, they and indeed this blog had served it’s pupose.

It had got me writing everyday and it had got me thinking about how I wrote. When you’re trying to make sense with 140 characters you have to make sure that every word, every punctuation mark, every space, is earning its pay.

So folks it’s time to move on. I’m off, to work on a novel I’ve had the first four chapters for, for about six years, it’s time to finish it. It’s a modern day Gothic thing set in Brussels.

I’ll still be about on twitter and who knows I may resurrect this blog at some point.

Until then have fun, read the stuff here and comment if you like, I’ll still be keeping an eye on this place.


And thanks to all of those who have taken the time to read and comment in the past.

Vacation Time… :)

I’m off on me Hol’s so this blog won’t be updated for the next two weeks…

However… I will still be writing the #twittertales which I will continue posting via my cell phone, here hopefully 🙂

See you in two weeks… and don’t try anything… My cats are keeping an eye on the place for me…

#twittertales He smothered the steak in rich sauce. Tomorrow, by order of the Holy Father, would be fish. He wondered if duck still counted.

Twitter Tales LXXI

#twittertales The familiar piano chords crashed into his headphones, he waited for Geldof’s voice. He disliked Monday, too many confessions.

#twittertales May couldn’t afford to get ill. She emailed her UK pal for Tamiflu. Over there they were giving it away on the street corners.
