New starts, tough decisions

Right. Finally got a few bits sorted out on various blogs, and sorting out my links. I’ve also taken the somewhat drastic step of hauling down everything that was filed under ‘writing’ on my previous blogs. This is for a couple of reasons.

What was up there was such an utterly mixed bag that I don’t feel it really represented me or my current writing at all; I used it as a way of prompting me to write flash fiction, or to air old performance work, so while some of it I’m very proud of, other bits were, frankly, toss.

This, I could probably live with were I updating it regularly but, what with launching Scars on Sound later this year, I’m not going to have the time to purpose-write for it, and the last thing I need is another dead blog nagging at me.

However, before you all tear your hair out in despair (what? Am I not allowed hubris?) alysearl.blogspot is NOT vanished forever. I still hold the blog and there may be something coming along sometime post-Novemeber, or even before if I get my act together. Said project will be rather lighter than Scars on Sound and may be familiar to some of you if I invoke the words ‘Necromantic Comedy’.

As to the poems and flash fiction, I may post bits and pieces, or recordings of readings up on this page, as well as news and announcements of other posts. By not committing to a weekly update, I may even manage it occasionally.

Well, a person can dream.

Now, I must dash and try and find a way to stop that header picture turning up sideways on the mobile site.

Help, anyone?
