I’d rather be writing…

…literary fiction than spending time struggling to work out how to format a blog site. Never mind; it’ll be worth it when it’s done. To think I used to work in IT! It seems that switching it off and on again doesn’t magically put everything right after all, so I’ve resorted to working my way through the WordPress tutorials. Bear with me, as one naturist said to the other (sorry; that one doesn’t really work in print).

I was hoping to have some examples of my writing on the site by now (other than posts, that is) but I haven’t quite worked out how to do it yet. I will, and very soon – watch this (cyber)space.

I have at least managed to put in some links to my novel on Amazon. I’ve eased off from writing a little whilst getting in some reading –  ‘The Children’s Book’ by A. S. Byatt, one of my favourite authors. There are a lot of characters and the narrative moves from one to another in a way that can be a little dis-jointed, but it’s still superb. It’s also a very good history lesson – she’s certainly done a lot of research. The only disappointment is that I’ve found quite a few typos and continuity errors, which suggests it was proof-read in a hurry. I have managed to do some work on the new book, and I hope to share my progress with you soon.
