I have started 8 blog posts and abandoned them all. I have no idea why I'm so blocked at the moment (though lack of time at the computer isn't helping).
I've been quite down about how many rejections you need to take in this writing game before a win...I can see how easy it is to chuck it all in. Then you get a small win, and the resolve to continue (but more of that to come...as it's not quite official yet).
I went to Mark Ronson last week (mainly because I love Theophilus London).

I'm not ready to stay down just yet. And so it continues for my small but very dear readership.
