Far too busy to write a proper post here, so for those of you who don't do twitter, this is just a reminder that Our Man is still alive and kicking. Oh, very well, he will spare you eight minutes.

But there are good reasons for not writing at this blog recently:
  1. Every post here is one less page he could have done for his novel. (Oh, that old chestnut).
  2. Yes, he is writing a novel. You know he started one and got pretty much done with the first draft when the earthquake hit.
  3. So then Our Man did his bit with Quakebook.
  4. In fact, he is still doing his bit with Quakebook (QB to its friends) and it's doing jolly well.
  5. But he just has to get this write-a-novel-before-you-finish-being-40 monkey off his back.
  6. He has given himself a month to write it AND GET IT PUBLISHED (emphasis his own).
  7. If you care, follow his, er, progress on twitter by clicking on this ridiculous twitter tag (warning: sadly is all too safe for work at the moment): #halflifebook.
  8. He's reworking it to get the earthquake in, since, well, it's kind of important for anyone writing about Japan, don't you think?
  9. And he had a holiday and everything.
  10. Your eight minutes are up.

People don't leave because things are hard. People do leave because it's no longer worth it.
