Of all the exciting ways I could think of to start a new blog, this is certainly one. Albeit a little way down the list.
I used to blog in the before-time, as Nick Crustacean (on when crustaceans attack) and as Nick Cetacean (on whale sushi). I got sick of it for one half-arsed reason or another. It kind of boiled down to me being sad that I wasn't more popular. Huh.
Anyway, in the intervening period I separated from my wife and struck out on a bold new life of my own (which is not entirely unlike my previous life only with considerably less wife in it). I also decided that I really need to write (novels, screen plays, the back of laundry boxes etc) otherwise I'm just going to experience considerable interior sadness in sad-sack paid employment.
I'm still in said paid employment. Only now I'm a serious writer.
This blog is a kind of web log, if you will, detailing my attempts at writing, seriousness and not being sad.
