Not Dead…

Posted in Personal with tags on October 25, 2011 by davidnm2009

…and now, the inevitable and obligatory “not dead” post!

I am, of course, very quiet at the moment. That’s because I’m well into the thesis-writing season. If that wasn’t enough, I’m also drafting a second paper – and unlike the last one, this one is on a pretty tight deadline. I need to get it submitted by Christmas; given that the last one took 18 months, this could prove interesting, shall we say.

Anyway, when writing for this thing I try to aim for interesting and high-quality articles. Unfortunately, that comes with a price, in the form of research time, drafting-time and proof-reading time. And time is rather in short supply at the moment! I could tap out lots of poorly-researched, badly-written, typo-filled pieces of article-padding, but I’m not going to do that. I have no desire to patronise the collective intelligence of the readership!

So I guess this is an extended way of saying that it’s likely to be a bit quiet around here for the next few months. If anything truly exceptional/unexpected happens, I may break my silence, but that’s a possibility rather than a promise.

Anyway, in the meantime, there’s a presentation I need to go and work on…
