The Story So Far...

Okay then I have a few questions for you, and when I say 'questions' it's probably a little more accurate to call them ponderings.

Firstly - I would like to thank everyone who has been following the blog recently, the stats are great. It's frankly not a shock that the post that mentioned Katie Price got the most attention, although that being said it's still vexing  that a frivolous bit of celebrity-bashing that took almost no time to write received more views than the pieces I'd worked on for several hours. But thank you anyway, no doubt I shall have another rant about another hapless celeb in the future I just can't help myself (not to mention its good for the readership figures).

Secondly - how much is too much?
With regards to this blog, how many posts can you stand - 2 or 3 a week? More maybe? I only ask as I'm planning something for the new year and I don't want to annoy you all by spamming your pants off! Even if they're nice pants, or bright orange speedos.

Which brings me to another point... and as I type this I'm getting down on my knees and looking up at you fluttering my eyelashes with my sweetest 'please, please, please' look on my face (yes! Just for you dear reader). I know how many of you are checking my sexy little blog out, and yes it's pert and firm to the touch, but could you please sign up to follow it... It makes me look good and if I'm ever going to get published I need to look good! Whats that you say... I need to finish my book and possibly learn how to write! Well thats not very nice, true maybe, but not very nice. On a related topic, a sort of 2.1 or 2a maybe, Facebook has decided in their wisdom to block my 'Explore' FB account from inviting people to join my friends list, so now I'm relying on you dear reader to find me more readers... if you like the blog tell your friends (tell 'em anyway even if you don't).

Thricely - Comments!
It's fair to say that my fragile male ego probably won't handle a good slating but I would still like a little feedback, (occasional) criticism if constructive is helpful and will in the long term help me to develop as a writer. Better still if you enjoyed it please feel free to shamelessly massage my aforementioned fragile male ego... I do so enjoy a nice massage!

Before I leave you I have a little bit of news for the local book readers of Plymouth.

St Luke's Hospice have just opened (I say 'just' but it's been open about five weeks already) The Reading Room - a used book shop on Hyde Park Road in Peverell. With books from 50p why not give an old book a new home and help a good cause at the same time. I will also be volunteering there a couple of days a week, so pop along and say hello!

Until next time...


  1. This is a hospice used book shop, not a youth club!

  2. Thats very true, but it will never measure up to the days in Blitz... I won't have you or Ian to make my life hell, or any X-men readers to poke with a pointy stick.


    I never brought you anything less than light and joy in Blitz. My mere presence comforted your very soul!

    Nick, however, was indeed a real pain in the arse.

    In respect to part one of your Dwarf tale - did you know that Little John is sadly no longer with us? Not sure of the official cause, but it would cause me to question my powers of reasoning if I found out that it wasn't alcohol-related.

  4. I'm really sorry to hear about John's passing... Part 2 will have to be written in his memory.

    On a lighter note, I think you being a comfort to my soul is a little strong. You traded far to many sex tips with my old man, for there to be anything like comfort!
