Well here we are... 2013... and blogs far and wide will be filled with details of New Year’s resolutions. Does anybody really want to know what promises others are going to make... and duly break? I bloody hope so because here are mine...
1) To finish the novel I started way back in 2005 (and have stopped, scrapped and restarted numerous times since...)
2) To try really hard and see if there is an agent or publisher out there who will like my work enough to (as Abba would say) “take a chance on me...”
3) Believe it or not... to exercise hard enough and successfully enough to mark my 49th birthday with a tasteful topless profile pic!!!
And yes, I know that no.3 will instantly lose me a lot of Facebook friends – but a man’s gotta do...
Finally, my arrival on Twitter has gone (as expected) largely unnoticed. I am currently being followed by 27 people and, in thanking each of them, I would make the observation that I am officially 116, 354 times less popular than Holly Willoughby.
That said, the year is still young...
All my own work... almost.
