This is a quick blog post, intended mostly as apology to the many many of you whose posts I need to respond to, comments I need to approve (or not!) and messages throughout eh “Contact Me” page I need to respond to.
I had an eye surgery at the end of April, and I sunk into an ever-growing swamp of emails during the two weeks I was out of action. And then I went straight from there into producing a show (more on that here!), so I couldn’t tackle the pile at all. And now there are over 70 emails waiting to be replied to, so I’m too intimidated to begin! But worry not, I promise to get back soon, and I promise that those of you who wrote to inquire about writing workshops will be informed as soon as I am ready to launch the next one (most likely in the last week of July, once I’ve had a chance to recover a bit!). And for those who’ve been asking about summer workshops, I’m afraid now — am off for a very long overdue family holiday, so will only get back o work in July.
In other news, I spent much of my first week post-op listening to the audiobook of Americanah… and I feel very inspired to return to blogging! Here’s crossing all my fingers and toes that I’ll be able to get back to this blog on a more regular basis very soon, not just to talk about writing workshops and the like, but also to reflect on all the so much happening around me.
