The following was originally posted on my Not A Travel Writer sub-tumblr. As tumblr dies following its ridiculous self-destruction, I have decided to correlate all my previous posts, from several places, here. It makes sense and, crucially, means I own my content. In theory, it also means it cannot be removed by anyone else.
I used to frequent tumblr lots, in a public fashion, sharing thoughts, photos, and generally using it for what it was intended. Then I stopped and began to use it only as a diary of sorts, perhaps recording the music I was listening to or the videos I was watching. Then I stopped that too.
Now time has moved on and I have decided to use this place, and this new sub-tumblr, to record short thoughts and ideas again, but to share them more publicly.
Expect many random things, things too short for a grown-up blog post (notatravelwriter.com is forthcoming) and things I want to save and remember.
There will be talk of places and people – I am currently in Chiang Mai in northern Thailand. There will be talk of words – I am currently editing my first novel and publishing some novellas too.
Who knows what there’ll be. I can’t even be that bothered to tag things either. Sorry.
