I’m Not Saying This Is An Excuse…

This is the first update in a little while, and as I contemplate serious typing I can only focus on the throbbing at the end of my left index finger, which seems to have developed an interesting bulge just before the nail. Yes, it hurts and I’m going to have to do something about it, but the real reason for no updates is a trip to my Wife’s homeland of Essex (I, to my semi-pride, am a Kentish Man who grew up as a Man of Kent, having swapped sides at the age of 2) to spend time with her family along with some very dear friends, most of whom attended my book launch back in March 2009. In fact, here’s a video of me being very nervous:
But now, despite the sore finger, I have no excuse not to write (except maybe the wood to cut, chutney to make, seedlings to plant…) and have spent a little time this week rejigging and adding to the contents, along with a page reintroducing the concepts I first talked about in Time’s Up! Now I have reached the point – and I will reveal the contents when they have finally settled down – when I need my first guest author to contribute. Just like organising a festival, it would be foolish for me to reveal who the guest authors will be, but I can say that I will be asking quite a few well known and respected people (at least in the more radical end of the spectrum) to make a little literal contribution. This is, not surprisingly, something I’m quite excited by.
The first letter has gone off, and in the meantime I have the knotty problem of connection and disconnection to put into just a couple of pages.
And also make acorn burgers.
