This blog is not the first one I’ve tried to make. Before I’ve done them out of boredom or because everyone else was doing them and at one point because I was living in Thailand and it seemed the thing to do.
This blog may have three or four posts and then die, probably a common thing in the blogosphere (wow what a twatty, twatty word to say or write) but I will try my best to maintain it.
My hope is that it will be like a journal of conversations I’d have with other people if I had friends who thought about the same things as me. Or at least if I still lived in the same country as them.
I should explain a little about that.
When I was 21 I left England and moved to Thailand, leaving behind a job in retail to become a teacher.
I worked in Thailand for two fabulous years where I met Fiona, the Australian love of my life.
And then we moved to Korea for two great (not as fabulous as Thailand) years and now we find ourselves living and teaching in Istanbul.
We’re coming to the end of our first year of Turkey and intend to do one more.
And in that one more year I’m going to write my book.
Twelve months to do it. Put up or shut up.
This blog is a place to keep the cogs turning and keep me writing.
Wish me luck.
