Hello…yes I am still alive

28 06 2009

Ok, you may be wondering about my considerable period of silence on the blogging front. I can assure you it’s got nothing to do with being too tired due to an over exertion of 5am writing habits. I wish! I have to confess getting to my computer by 6am is a novelty these days. Basically work (the ‘day job’) has taken over and I have to rewrite a new schedule for fitting the writing in. That sounds awful!

Saturdays are working well and once term has ended and my youngest is off for the summer, life should get easier. It will mean I will have at least two hours available for writing in the morning instead of one. Those ‘school runs’ eat time you know.

There is another reason too you know. As I have come to write Mona, I have realised that there is a lot more research to be done. At the moment I am reading books on astronomy and astrology; magic and religion and Karen Armstrong’s A History of God. This is my second reading of A History of God and I find myself making copious notes in the margin (I won’t be selling that in Amazon Market Place then!) If you interested in the history of religious thought, the book will take you by the hand and lead you through 4000 years of thinking about religion.

So bear with me….there will be more regular updates from now on, I promise.
