I'll Be Back

I began this blog almost a year ago. I've come on an incredibly long way in almost a year. I wrote 51 posts in 2011 - about enough for one every week. I've written a lot of fiction. I've learned a lot about publishing and how to write. I submitted my first piece to an editor. (The anthology is no longer going ahead, so it won't be published any time soon, but I still subbed!) I've met some absolutely fantastic people, both virtually and in real life. And I've learned a lot about myself. This time last year I was just starting to learn about myself - I'm still learning (and always will be) but I know more about myself now than I think I'd learned in the 25 years leading up to 2011. Nosce te ipsum has become a mantra.

Things changed a lot in September. I moved house to start a new job in a new part of the country. I left my husband... and found out my lover was married. It's been very hectic. I had to make a lot of changes, and I haven't really written any fiction since, NaNoWriMo notwithstanding. Unfortunately things are still in a constant state of flux, and I've decided that I won't be pressing myself to write anything for a while.

I haven't disappeared -  I'm currently writing my life story for fun and catharsis, and you can find it here. I'm also making a lot of sock monkeys. I'm on Twitter regularly and manage to make the London Erotic Meets roughly every other month. Please do stay in touch!

This is not goodbye. This is "see you some time." I shall be back, and trust me, I'll let you know all about it when it happens.

Thanks all so much for your continued support and enthusiasm.
