It has been a long time since I last blogged. Events overtook me and I lurched from one crisis to another - one bereavement to another. They knocked the stuffing out of me, to be honest.
I had been struggling for a while, with illness in the family and with trying to keep up with a variety of commitments, personal and professional.
So, I had to stop soon after the last post in this blog. I went away and did all that I had to do, grieved and tried to work when I could. What I wrote in this period was rubbish and so things backlogged and the mountain grew. I soon got depressed and despondent and then found that I did not want to work. In fact, I wanted to be anywhere other than at my desk.
This was difficult as I had two new books to launch and promote and more that I was working on. It is lucky that I have patient and understanding publishers.
So, time has passed and here I am again. I am sad but I am working. Book deadlines have been moved and I am slowly getting there.
I hope to blog more regularly from now onwards.
