Anyway, to aid my chances of success in blogging every week and to simplify matters, I am going to post the same blog here as on the Huffington Post. I have not made the most of the opportunity I was given on that paper, just over a year ago and I have resolved to do so from now on. Many people dream of blogging for the Huff - I was offered the chance on a plate and perhaps failed to appreciate it sufficiently.
Onwards and upwards.
By the way, this blog wont be up on the Huff until later tonight or tomorrow, because I have to find a picture to accompany it first. I need to get on with my latest Work in Progress now, because novels don't get on and write themselves, as I have discovered to my cost...
So, you saw it here first... Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway
I am on a constant drive to beat my neuroses. Sometimes it feels a bit like that game where you hit the crocodiles or frogs or whatever with a hammer – you bash one down then another pops up in a different place, seemingly faster and faster… Funnily enough I started to write this blog one day last week and then the following day Deborah Ross, one of my favourite columnists in The Times, used the same analogy in that paper and had the correct name for the game too – Whack a Mole.
