Almost six months since I wrote in this blog – I am astonished; this length of time is my most impressive delay but it does reflect my ambivalent relationship to my writing at the moment. After the publication of my collection of short stories, Here and There, I came to a halt. I wasn’t sure what to write next and as a result I have a number of half finished stories, a few poems and two incomplete novels. I resorted to writing a few reviews for the blog wenlowdwhisperswordpress.com and made sure I wrote in my journal in the hope these writing activities would jump start my fiction writing again. Meetings with my fellow Oswestry writers is always positive.
I think though the lift will come from travelling. A couple of weeks away in a completely different place is just refreshing.
