The long and the short

Yeah, there’ve been complaints. — “Write simpler! 🙂 “, says one. — “You write so looong!”, says another. — “I have a problem with your blog-posts”, says yet another. “I know I’ll be required to think hard if I read

Two goodbyes

The tall guy in the black hooded cloak with a scythe and a penchant for SPEAKING IN CAPITAL LETTERS came calling for two people I knew in the last two days. Two goodbyes… The first was, I’ll admit, very much

Embracing our inner weirdness

Easter. In the Christian calendar at least – and in the pagan one that preceded it – it’s supposed to be a time of rebirth. Yet rebirth of what? And into what, or whom? If it’s a more personal form

A kind of milestone

One thousand blog-posts. That’s quite a milestone, really. Not quite there yet: this one’s number nine hundred and ninety-nine, to be precise. Though out of those so far, there were the hundred or so in the Twitter-extracts series – ‘A week in Tweets’

Starting-friction

Great idea! Let’s get started! Uh… How do we get started? Kind of ‘There’s a hole in my bucket‘, often – everything depends on everything else, so there’s no clear place to start. But since everything does depend on everything else, it’d

Yabbies – a bit of background

All right, I admit it: my novel Yabbies doesn’t say much about real-life yabbies. In fact they only put in one cameo appearance in the whole book: “Yabbies. Funny little things, all in their own world at the bottom of

Yabbies – a novel

Happy to announce that I’ve at last gotten round to publishing my sort-of-novel Yabbies. Hooray! 🙂 (I perhaps ought to say ‘completed and published’, but as you’ll see, ‘completing’ isn’t quite the right word, since much of the content is
