I’ve been atrocious at keeping this blog updated the last few weeks/months. Mainly this is because I’ve been working strenuously on the redraft of my novel (the interminable, endless, never-to-be-completed redraft … ) but also because I’m in the throes of moving house from Glasgow to sunny Edinburgh, and nothing is less conducive to creative work than the process of moving house.
Once safely ensconced in the Athens of the North however, I’m going to come back at it with a vengeance. Not only will the blog be updated on a far more regular basis, but, with my colleague and co-editor Martin MacInnes, I’ll be able to concentrate on the relaunch of the inestimable Free State as well. 2012 has got off to a fairly slow start so far, but once the trials of January have been overcome things should get back to normal.
Thanks to everyone who has kept reading in the meantime.
