I’ve not been so chatty…

I know I’ve not been very chatty recently, I don’t want anyone to think that I’m ignoring them, or not interested in blogging anymore. Like I’ve said before, I’m working on an all-consuming project at the moment and it’s difficult to drag myself out of that and focus on something else. Also, I just realised a big flaw in the book I wrote, so I’m trying to rework that too. Give it a few weeks, and it should all be back to normal.

It’s probably a bit daft to write a post like this, but while I’ve not met any of the posters whose blogs I follow, some of you I feel I know well enough to think of as friends, and I don’t want you to feel ignored or unappreciated.

Anyway, I will try and keep up reading and posting, but if I get a bit slack please be patient.

And here is a picture of a praying mantis.

  2. It is good to be focused. When you are on a roll you need to go with it and not get diverted. Beautiful Mantis with those colours. There are only green ones in our garden. It must come from somewhere exotic.

    1. I love em! The way they follow you with their steady gaze, so calm yet ready to destroy. That probably hasn’t assuaged your fears, has it? πŸ˜‰

  3. Take all the time you need – what needs work and time is what needs work and time – and no sense in spreading yourself too thin – just makes for exhaustion and extreme bitchiness breeding resentment. So work/play away as needs, interests must …. we’ll still be here and around when you pop in, for short bursts or longer moments, – friend – 😁

    and so many have commented: great drawing – refreshing and intense!

  4. Yes, putting your creative work first is what matters, but it is lovely to take the time to explain. You’re a favourite blogger ‘friend’ of mine. I found myself using a praying mantis for a metaphor where my leading lady is surreptiously watching her antagonist. My favourite bug has to be the bumbling bumble bee

  5. Sometimes trying to maintain an internet presence can become overwhelming…. it’s massively time consuming…espesh when you’re trying to live a LIFE, and get stuff done! No need for explanations; totally understand! ( but of course we appreciate them all the same πŸ™‚ )
    Happy creative productivity to you!
    Oh- and lovely praying mantis! They’re amazing little creatures, and this drawing is so vibrant. Lovely lines, too.

  6. I’ve been wondering these days. ‘Where is Inkbiotic? Where did she go? What is keeping her away?”

    Vola! Here is the answer. Thanks for this post. Now I know you’re fine and doing well. I missed you.
