Electric Alphabet has been silent the last two months, and it’s time to fix that.
So, one of my new year’s resolutions is to blog every day. I thought I would have blogged more over the Christmas break, but there’s something about summer that switches off my critical brain. I get sleepy and lazy, like a koala. All I want to do is watch cricket and read books. I’m absolutely certain this resolution will be broken, but it’s great to set the bar high. Now that I’ve finally gotten around to putting WordPress and Twitter on my iPhone I think it will be a lot easier to blog little and often, although I still intend to post longer, more thoughtful pieces as often as possible.
There are a heap of other new year’s resolutions, of course, mostly the usual feeble nods to better diet and exercise, but as far as this blog is concerned, there’s exciting discussion happening all over the interwebs about publishing futures and I’m keen to participate.
To start with, here are some fantastic events I’ll be attending over the next few months:
- January: Clarion South Writers Workshop, Brisbane Australia
- February: O’Reilly Tools of Change for Publishing, New York, USA
- March: The Ideas Festival, Brisbane, Australia
Maybe I’ll see you there!
