    One of the reasons I'm so in awe of those Fans ( we know a few) who have
    the discipline to set aside time, to write a book or two. =D> I don't know
    how they do it, like many of us, I have loads of ideas, but never carry them
    through :( So I'm sure trying to constantly find new stories, articles or
    points of interest for a blog must be equally as difficult.

    Yes, I thought it was silly to keep using the alias David Dragonpol (the serial killer villain of John Gardner's Never Send Flowers, 1993) from here on in. I thought it better to trade off my own name so that it doesn't look like I'm ashamed of my writing so much! Whether this is wise or not I don't know! I'll leave that judgement to my readers. :))

    The upcoming content will still be of the same quality though, despite the name change.

    I've been absent from TBB for a while as I've been engaged with my own writing (still am actually) but intend to visit very soon. It is the only blog I subscribe to.

    Thank you for your continued support, @stag. It's really much appreciated. I hope the writing of your second novel is going well. :)

    Thank you, friend.

    This month some time. Not sure of an exact date just yet as I'm still working at it. Should be something different at least!

    I'll of course let you know when it "goes live" on the blog. :)

    Well, I'm back writing again and trying to compose some new material for the blog. I'm blowing the dust away and hopefully the writer's block has passed sufficiently. ;)

    Well thanks to my wonderful readers my blog has finally passed the 100,000 views mark! It's currently on 100,271 views. It's taken over five years but I'm very happy to have reached this milestone. I hope to have a new blog article out very soon.

    Will do. It's been a good few years (on 1 August 2015) since I published a new article of my own on the blog. There have been two Guest Articles since then, however.

    I'm glad. It is a rather obscure topic perhaps, but I tend to specialise in that on TBB.

    It's something I've thought about for a good while and happily Christopher Wood had some thoughts on it too. I'll explore this all in-depth in the article. :)

    Thank you, @Agent_99. Yes, I hope to get some new material completed soon. This was the starting point after too many false dawns!
