On Hiatus

That’s right, this blog is on hiatus at the moment. There is a bank of emotional and intellectual ammunition that has been spent and I don’t know if it will ever come back. What I do know is that I had the opportunity to write and comment upon what is likely to have been the formative political and social event of my life - the Syrian Revolution.

What the future will decide upon the events of early 2012 is yet to be known, and whilst the vicious battles on the streets and cities of that country have slowly quietened, the online ones between those who are fighting to preserve the memory of this revolution, and the blancmange apologists who fight the corner of tyranny, are only just beginning. That is a battle I will have to bow out of. I’m writing a lot of fiction these days, and it’s terrible stuff, yet immensely satisfying. 

You can continue to follow me on Twitter where I will be rabble rousing and causing mischief. Or you might, by happy chance, find one of my books in a bargain bin or charity shop one day. If you do, I hope you enjoy it 😊
