I was going to blog this morning about inspiration – how, just when you’re struggling with a piece, a bright idea hits you like a ray of sunshine and your literary engine starts really motoring. But I didn’t, and it’s just as well, because my ed has looked at the inspired piece in question and pointed out – rightly – that I’ve written a great big pile of shite.

This is not turning out to be a good week.

    But on the plus side, this post made me laugh. So you know, you could try stand up or something if the writing gets too tough.

    He does like going on Billy Connolly style rants after a shandy or two. He hates me saying that as well. :-D

  3. It wasn’t me this time, unlesss I’ve set up an email rule to send you a mail once a week to say “that piece sucks” and forgotten all about it ;-)

    Nah, *i’ve* set up an email rule to delete those ones.

  5. So, if the magazine aren’t going to use, could you post this piece of crap up here for us to enjoy?

    Heh. Too late – it’s halfway through a major rewrite to turn it into what another ed calls “y’know, proper writing” :)
