No Post this week!

October 26, 2012

My computer is at the menders this week, and I have been unable to create a new post on my brother’s family’s machine. So, after 18 weeks of consecutive posting, I must apologise for failing to produce “an interesting read” and hope to resume this blogging service next week.

  1. So sorry to hear that your computer has been misbehaving – mine decided to pack in a couple of years ago, leaving me without an address book, a diary, etc. I hope that you get everything sorted out soon. John


    • Thank you very much for your sympathetic comment John, it is very much appreciated. I’m still a bit scared of my PC, but should now be able to return to regular posting.


    • Hello John,
      This is just a quick note to thank you for Liking my most recent post, ‘Festive Greetings from the Blogosphere’.
      I had a grim 2013 and precious little encouragement from anybody apart from continuous pressure to ‘get a job’, i.e. to do anything apart from writing – as if I had a choice!
      Indifference, hostility and plain exhaustion have led to my current ‘dry spell’, which I hope is temporary but is becoming frighteningly prolonged! So, in these circumstances, your simple ‘like’ means a great deal to me.
      I’m not holding you responsible for anything but your kind act of support is helping me to renew my creative energies. Knowing that you and other followers of my blog are out there, prepared to be interested and to appreciate any good work I do manage to produce, gives me faith that there really is a community of writers here on the ‘Blogosphere’ and to feel proud and eager to once again be counted amongst them.
      I know you do a great deal to support poets and poetry, have always admired the work you produce and look forward to the time when I can be as supportive of your work as you have of mine.
      Best wishes for a happy and fruitful 2014,
      JPF (John) Goodman


      • Hi John,
        I am sorry to hear that 2013 was, in terms of your writing, a fallow year. There’s no advice I can offer as I have not written for long enough, or regularly enough, to claim to understand very much about these things, or how it feels when the going gets tough. However, I sincerely hope that inspiration strikes you in 2014, and that you get your groove back on!
        With all my best wishes,
