All quiet on the virtual front
It has been more than a month since I added anything to this blog. My excuses? I have been working (amongst other things on a nightmarish project – a very large multi-author academic text including foreign contributions which in the end had to be sent back for retranslation, contributions from academics who are either too busy or too important to respond to queries from mere editors, and – oh, by the way – ‘we’d like to add another chapter to it’ . . . the saga continueth!); I have been away on retreat (a few days of quiet reflection at Alnmouth Friary); and I have been madly revising the novel (spurred on by the vague possibility that an agent might be interested in it).
