I took a sort of nap in this blog for a few weeks, as you may well have noticed. I think there is a phenomena we should perhaps call blog burn-out, when after months or years of doing a perfectly respectable job of posting up the latest news embellished with incredibly insightful personal opinions (!), I seemed to hit a wall and everything suddenly seems a lot more effortful and a lot less enjoyable. Maybe it's time to move on? I'm finding that I am enjoying Twitter, and am still posting links to articles about books and writing there, so please follow me.
I will put up notices of events (mine and others) and perhaps the odd post when I really feel like it.
