Reasons why Being Me is going to be Was Being Me for a while
Option 1. I start out with the intention of chasing more agents and publishers for my books/beginning a new novel/writing some articles/trying to pitch a new column/entering some story and poetry competitions, but after 5 minutes of enthusiasm decide to blog/read blogs instead because it's just TOO DIFFICULT. I therefore spend hours blogging and then find it's bedtime.
Option 2. I decide to have a break from the blogosphere so that I can give myself as much chance as possible of actually getting past that 'it's just too difficult' point.
I know myself too well. So, I've decided on option 2. You're a great bunch of followers and I hope you'll stick around so that when that I start 'Being Me' again in September or thereabouts, you'll be looking out for a seminal post about a stuffed animal or an incident on a local bus ....
(And please don't be surprised if, in September, all I've done is planned the name of a main character for a book and sent a haiku off.)
