"And Now I'm Bullshitting" - a Memoir, by Paul Carroll.

It's been much too long since I've posted anything on Google+.

During the summer, I pulled back from social media for a while. It took a while to really get back to Twitter properly, and even then I'm barely managing that now. However, I never really found my way back to Google+, and for that I apologise.

I made a lot of friends here, and I intend to come back more often. Not just to share links to blog posts and what have you, but to leave updates and comments and to +1 other people's posts.

Right now, I'm in the middle of a wee bit of teaching - web design of all things! - but I'm also making videos again. My goal is to make five this month, and so far...I've managed two. But I'm editing the third. It's almost done, I swear.

It's about bed time for me, but I couldn't keep putting this off for another day. Catch y'all real soon!

It's been a while since I published a video on YouTube. However, as part of a plan to get more involved in social media again, I figured I'd kickstart with a vlog.

This is largely unedited (clipped off the bookends) but it serves its purpose: to begin the process of returning online across the various platforms I used to use more often.

I finally got back to writing my book, after a two day break and some awful drawing.

Links to today's blog post and poem can be found below. In the meantime...

Tired, confused, and only a couple of hours out of work, it became apparent that my life is a blooper reel that never seems to end.

The song playing in the background (and God do I hope it's only background noise!) is Hank Green's Strange Charm (NOT This Is Not Harry Potter, which is also excellent.)

Just before this little writer goes to get a cup of tea - before an early night's sleep - here's today's video:

Today's poem is I've Been Waiting. I'll let it do the talking for itself. http://paragraverse.wordpress.com/2014/07/02/ive-been-waiting/

Continuing the Get to Know Me theme for this month, find out What I Write

I'm just about to start writing for the day - which is a lot later than I'd have liked to be starting! My target is three chapters. Let's do this thing!
