It wasn’t a cryptic post.

Currently, the blog is taking a back-seat to completion of the Alf manuscript. It’s taking a lot of effort, in and around the permanent madness of full-time work. The only thing I can compare it to is trying to complete a full-time PHD whilst having a full-time job. And children. And wanting to ride a bike. Something has to give.

I’m not far off, currently on about chapter 11 of 13, with a deadline looming in about three weeks (which I won’t meet) and a publication date of April (which I will meet).

In the meantime, here are some stickers.


And here is Vic Gibbons, who started it all with a sticker back in the 1970s.

  1. Solidarity from me (having just finished 6th draft of 100k novel for my MA, alongside all that you mention – partly why I run rather than ride of late). Looking forward to reading all about Alf when the book’s published.
