I don’t object to being hung… no comment is either necessary or prudent here.

Or drawn – preferably with crayon in a pastiche of Jean-Francois Millet. I particularly liked ‘Man With A Hoe’ (1860), until I was told that it was inappropriate for someone of my age to be using such inflammatory language.

I could even stand being quartered…in the  house of my (sadly deceased) landlady who fed and watered me with bacon and strong tea during my somnambulent drift through art school, in another century.

But, I deserve the real meaning of this expression, if only metaphorically.

I have not posted to my blog for quite some time. Mea maxima culpa.

My excuse is that I am absolutely rubbish at self-publicity and enjoy writing fiction way too much. Coupled with an inability to multi-task, something had to give and it was the blog.

I have been writing and not blogging.

I apologise to everyone who follows my blog. I will get back to normal service when this particular demon has ceased riding me like a carnival horse.

So, I hope that you will bear with me during this time of inattention and keep the faith.

I’ll be back.

    I’ll be off the grid soon. I have been doing everything but writing. =(

      It’s so easy, isn’t it? Your blog output has been er..a lot, over the last few weeks. So, time for writing, young lady and no excuses.


      • K. S. Bowers says:

        I don’t know why, but in order for me to get any writing done, I can’t be online at all. It kills my creativity. I don’t know why. Yep. No excuses. I have one last post to make and I’ll be gone indefinitely. 😀


      • J.D.Hughes says:

        I hope you’re not gone indefinitely, K. – I enjoy your posts. But I know how easy it is to spend days online doing ‘research’ or reading blogs and that uses a different part of the brain. At the moment, free ebooks are both the delight and the bane or my life but just another attention black hole.


      • K. S. Bowers says:

        I know what you mean. Maybe I should do one post a month. I don’t know. I need to be offline for a few months so I can finish my wip.

    I’ve missed your posts JD. But I understand all too well. I’ve tried Twittering and it takes way too much time. I always find your stuff entertaining and informative without all that self importance that so many blogs have, so please keep it up. Hey, where’s the novel?


    • J.D.Hughes says:

      Thanks for your kind words, Lisa, but I’m a fraud. I can only blog about topics in which I’m actually interested. Since my interest has been in only one direction the blog has suffered. I suppose I should have invented interests.

      The novel? Out soon. Waiting for artwork. I trust your work goes well?

    If you’re a fraud I’m a giraffe! I’ve about 35k words and my novel’s reached a sort of plateau where i can go one of several ways. Decisions, decisions… 😉
