February has been and gone, and somehow, it didn’t take its time over it. I guess I am not a fan of February – it seems to be a month that is dark and unforgiving, wet and recalcitrant, as if its lack of days gives it the right to drag you into its unwelcome soul… or it could just be that I wasn’t a happy bunny for much of it this time round. That seems more likely.
Actually, I did mean to write a post during February but time just went on its way and I became bogged down in the rubbish that is work, eventually having to resort to drugs (24 pence-worth of Paracetamol) to function. I was stressed and that lowered my immune system that then allowed some bug some house-room that lowered my immune system and so on. The circle of microscopic-life.
But I don’t feel bad about this really. I am better now and I have given a gallic-type shrug to the problems at work and returned to the blogging keyboard. My “problems” don’t qualify to be called that, by any measure.
One thing I want to catch up on in March is my blog reading – I have neglected this recently and it is to my detriment. I do find WordPress hard to use when it comes to finding blogs about specific subjects, or indeed specific blogs, though.
The other thing I want to, nay MUST do, is finish Kirkenes Blue. An unfinished draft has been sat quietly on the hard drive for months now, awaiting endings and additional middle bits. My vast* experience of novel-writing and the publishing world tells me that just having the picture for the front cover is not, on its own, a guarantee of success, although we live in a world where Morrissey’s dull lifeless musings are published as a Penguin Classic, so maybe I am wrong.
I hope March finds you all ready to leap into the lightness of spring (or fall into the fruitful arms of autumn if you are on that side of the World) – another glass of Sauvignon and I’m set!
* Meaning “almost non-existent”.
