You might be forgiven for thinking I’ve fallen into some sort of blogging black hole, after all, I’ve posted nothing for a month. It’s not a black hole, more of a summer induced Twilight Zone incorporating a camping holiday to France and then total immersion in the festival of sport that has been our amazing Olympic games. It really has been the most pleasurable time waster – there have been days when I’ve got very little done as I flick between events (big thumbs up to BBC coverage). Reading hasn’t taken a back seat, but writing about reading most definitely has.
I’m not even going to attempt to describe the emotions I’ve experienced during these Olympics, I’m not sure my writing abilities can cope. Suffice it to say I have been, among other things, proud, exhilarated, excited, tearful, gutted, frightened (mainly while watching diving), inspired and wishing I was younger. The Games come to an end this evening and normal service at Fiction Habit towers will then resume.
Thank you for your patience!

Nice to have you back. I look forward to your posts and don’t forget the literary tours of your area please! I think that the Olympics gave us all a chance to look at ourselves as Britons of every shape, size, sex, faith and colour and I think we’ve been a bit surprised to find out that we really are very nice people and that it’s okay to wave the Union flag. It’ll be interesting to see how the post-Olympic glow develops over the next few months.
Nice to be back! I’ve not forgotten the “Reading around my Area” thing and will probably start with a new author in the Autumn. Looking forward to it!
