First of all, a few ground rules of what to expect from this blog.
I frequently haven’t got a clue what I’m talking about. Don’t expect much research to go into anything I say (unless specifically stated), and I reserve the right to spout absolute rubbish on this blog (that is what they’re for, isn’t it?).
I don’t really understand how to blog. Some of my posts may well be random trains of thought with little in the way of coherence or structure.
I will probably be talking about my writing a bit. So, yes, it could get a bit self-promotional. If that kind of thing puts you off then you probably don’t want to hang around.
I guess at least a third (generously) of articles not related to writing (and possibly even those related to) will be of absolutely no interest to any given reader. I’ll try and make it clear in the title or first paragraph whether it’s something of interest.
I may not respond to all comments. I’ll try and read all, but I can tend to deliberate a lot when responding to stuff, and if I’m busy it may take me a while, or I may just forget I wanted to respond to something (or, you know, I might just not care).
I have no idea how long this will last before I run out of ideas or impetus for blog postings. I’ll try and post something once a week, and I’m hoping that’ll last more than a month, but this in no way constitutes any kind of a binding contractual oath or promise.
I don’t want to spend too much time writing (and editing, and rewriting, and tweaking, which happens a lot in my writing) so these will not be as well written as I may like them to be, and I apologize in advance for any errors.
