      Jill If a post has offended you, surely better to address the issue (politely) on that post? Just a thought...

      David I was having a go at The Cloud itself, which sometimes never seems to stop, othertimes to grind to a halt. An attempt at being clever and funny . . .

    David . . . is thinking of setting up a group called The Yawn Factor, where I sit like Simon Cowell and listen to you describe your WIP, and if I don't like it I yawn and wave you on.

    "David" commented on David's Blog "The Green Man".
    I reckon that what I'm now referring to as The Tree Man dates back thousands of years, although John Barleycorn is more recent, probably a Medieval creation. Anyway, it is most likely a celebration of fertility but also of the dark mysteries ...

About

Worked as a professional journalist for most of the 00s. Then moved into scriptwriting. I had a radio play and a short film produced, and was working on a pilot for a tv series when I decided to focus on my novel. (samples of my writing: http://writing-community.writersworkshop.co.uk/forum/topic/15994; http://writing-community.writersworkshop.co.uk/forum/topic/16225; http://writing-community.writersworkshop.co.uk/forum/topic/16312 http://writing-community.writersworkshop.co.uk/forum/topic/13589)

In the past I've also spent time as a musician. I played bass guitar in a few embarrassingly-named bands down the years: UGE, X-Amount, The Zens and Allandale.

    It'll be a while yet. If I get my way it'll be somewhat cheaper than the current edition

    Thanks David. I hope you enjoy it. Between you, me and the gatepost, I'm hoping for another edition at some point (and then maybe a sequel), but there will be a slog to go through before then

    Hello my SE buddy-in-arms! If it is, indeed, your birthday today (coz we know the Cloud has a warped sense of humour around dates) then I hope you have a very Happy Birthday and that you're doing something fun to celebrate.
