Readers of this blog may have noticed a marked decline in quantity of blog posts. They have not yet begun a search for a missing blogger, but I have not been idle.
Most of you will remember that I suffered a slight stroke back in January of this year. This had an impact on my typing speed and skills, but I was able to do some writing. Also, I felt a shift in what I wanted to write. Increasingly (after more than fifteen years of blogging) the blog felt like an echo chamber. New ideas used to come thick and fast. They were slower and thinner.
Also, as our kids grew up and my wife’s business was successful the need for monetary return on my writing was less. This led me to desire writing fiction and drama.
