n54594820115_6297_biggerGood grief, is it a week since I last blogged? Not good. The day job has suddenly gone a bit bananas, which has kept me from more important stuff like writing. Still, it helps pay the bills until the day when Mrs Darcy tops the bestseller lists …

(At this point, we should probably have one of those wavy dissolves where I drift off into a dream, from which I am rudely awoken by an irate phone call from one of my clients.)

Anyway, it’s just occurred to me that I haven’t yet pointed you in the direction of the piece that I read at the start of February at Sparks 12, “Ariadne and Her Lover”, a slightly skewed take on Greek mythology. I had a great time as usual there and I even managed to get back home by one o’clock in the morning.

But the next big event is the Get Writing conference on Saturday, which I am really looking forward to. Should be an absolutely terrific day: loads of ace speakers and the chance to meet several chums from the Twitterverse for the first time.
