Thanks to Paul who wrote directly to me wondering why I hadn't posted here for some time. No, I'm not ill and I haven't gone away. I have just been too busy to blog. Firstly, time was taken up by the second run of Californian Lives - at the OSO in Barnes, successful to the extent that I even made a little money from it. Then considerable time was taken by ultimately fruitless discussions over a possible third run in North London. Another consumer of hours has been, and continues to be, preparation for the second run of Tadzio Speaks . . ., at the Etcetera Theatre in Camden in mid-November. I've also finally started writing the piece that Christopher Annus has commissioned for the Edinburgh Fringe next year - and negotiating the theatre space for that and the two other plays I am putting on. There's the book business, which was taking up a lot of time until buyers seemed to disappear. And of course there's personal life, including regular trips to the land of my birth as well as the usual housework and shopping and car repairs and flopping out in front of the television at the end of the day and sleep and cups of coffee and so on, which carries on regardless and which leaves no time to post frivolous or serious thoughts online.
So - apologies to those in the past who have wondered what has happened to me and to those in the future reading this when I still haven't got round to another post. In the meantime, if you really want to know what's going on in my professional life, follow me on Twitter (see the link on the right) or Facebook. I may not always show it, but I really do appreciate the attention.
