A temporary farewell…

March 15, 2010

Regular shuckers may have noticed I’ve been a bit absent here recently – have been running round the countryside a bit too much, to Adelaide Writers’ Week (great fun) followed by a spot of camping (ditto, except for incessant rain – but we still ate well, hooray!), followed by a few other weekend trips here and there.

This post is to announce a little howtoshuck hiatus  for the next wee while. I love this blog, but it can lead me astray rather when my real work lies waiting. I am determined to finish my novel in progress this year, and there’s much work to do. And as we’ve just passed the one-year mark for this blog’s existence, it seems like a good time to take a break.

I hope you all come back when I do – hopefully in a month or two’s time, when I’ve had my nose to the grindstone for long enough to get another draft of the book done. And when I do come back, there’ll be many meals to share and ideas to ask you about. So don’t go away.
