After much cajoling and coercion, I have finally accepted the fact that a blog is a worthwhile activity. Worthwhile, that is, for an author; where else can you expect to be able to write what you want and deliver it directly to your readers without the intervention of a middle
man person? Hopefully worthwhile, also, for a reader – ideally for more than one reader, but I mustn’t set my expectations too high!
Quite a while ago I wrote a post or two for the blog run by my publisher, but have been extremely lax about continuing to contribute. This time I can’t hide behind a corporate logo, so if this blog isn’t being updated there’s no-one to blame but myself.
