For those who think I’ve been rather inactive on the writing front for a while … you’re absolutely right. I’ve been sat on my duff, eating and drinking heartily, singling merrily, and dancing like a man with legs of uneven length and pants full of ants. Writing of any sort has been the last thing on my mind. In fact, I’ve gone out of my way not to be left alone with a keyboard. I even considered selling my house just so I wouldn’t have to go in my study this month.
Alas, my reticence where writing was concerned was bound to dry up eventually. A little while ago, a fellow blogger mentioned that she was about to celebrate her blogiversary, and she asked if I would consider writing something to mark the occasion. And being a man who doesn’t like disappointing women, I said I’d try and come up with a suitable piece.
In the meantime … a happy, successful and – most importantly of all – peaceful New Year to you all.
