What next?

Reading time: < 1 min Last night, around 3am, I woke up. I lay there in bed wondering why I’d woken up and as my mind started to churn I realised I was very very awake. In flooded four things I’ve been thinking about for some time, all of which are related but I couldn’t quite make the connection. Last […]

NaNoWriMo? No!

Reading time: < 1 min I’d love to. I really would. Every year that rolls around finds me considering it. Every year I start to jot down notes (where do you think one man tales came from?).
