A post about not posting, and then posting again

11 October 2012

Oh, Lordy – where does time go?  When I first started writing this blog in January, I thought I wouldn’t want to be one of those people who updates it once a year, or even less.  There is documentary evidence to the right of this that I used to be very good at writing something every day, then a couple of times a week, and as the romance wears off less and less….

Ok, it’s not just the romance thing.  It’s more to do with only posting something postworthy, and wondering who really cares about my random ramblings, and suddenly getting all self-conscious on you, dear reader.  At first the things I thought postworthy were new poems – somebody might be interested in those.  But it turns out you cannot post new poems on your blog if you want to send them anywhere for publicaton, so I stopped doing that.  Then I thought, I would post new artwork.  Since I was making quite a lot till about June, I considered those images postworthy.  And then it all got rather busy and I had nothing, zilch, zero, zip  creative to show for my time.

But hear this!  Two things of postworthy merit!  Firstly I have updated the ‘Images’ gallery on this site to archive all of the images I have been posting on this blog.  Also here is a link to a film made by Tom Bloor based on my book ‘The Breakfast Machine’ http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/helen+ivory.  Also, Crow has arrived.  I’ll tell you more about him later.
