Blog update. In which I reflect upon springtime in the garden, a recent writer's workshop, and how practise doesn't make things perfect, or even easier, but does make things faster.

ICYMI, blog update!

A couple of new posts this week: one about my utter delight at receiving a contributor's copy of the magnificent Clockwork Phoenix 5, including launch party details; and the other about awards eligibility. With added giant dogs and dancing baby rays.

A new blog post, on how I did with last year's writing goals, and what I've set myself this year.

I wrote a blog post about how I find it necessary to start every piece by hand, even though I no longer have to write the whole first draft with pen and paper.

(Sometimes I do, but not always.)

Taking a break from Christmas catering to do some writing. Enjoying the free wifi access here in the holiday lodge. Oh internets, how I've missed you!

I wrote a blog post about how this foghorn I saw on my lunchtime run reminded me of Michael Moorcock.

Today I have mostly been driving boxes of stuff around, reviewing Derren Brown's Tricks of the Mind, and updating the "About" page on my website. I still have to have a shower before bed and it's already past midnight. Getting up in the morning is going to be tough.

I just wrote a blog post on why I found Glen Duncan's strange analogy in his NYT magazine review of Zone One so amusing.

Updated my Android phone this morning. It ate my HTC car panel. I am most unimpressed. Finally tracked down the equivalent under "locations" but it isn't as good as it was before. Although, as a plus, I downloaded the options that give me my directions in an Afrikaans or Canadian accent, just because. having just moved to an area of the country with which I am completely unfamiliar, and having a job that requires visiting obscure locations, for the first time I'm finding myself using satnav quite a lot.

The google navigator is better in some ways, because it has less pernickety destination criteria, but I dislike the voice. Still use it for bike navigation, though, as the car panel is, unsurprisingly, geared for motorised transport.

I'd use the Scots male voice for the navigator if it sounded like David Tennant or one of the Proclaimers...
