Whilst I owe my blog a more considered post, this is not it, due to a number of factors, not least of which is a surfeit of sugar.
Instead I'd like to share a random thought that I had as a reader. It's also something that, as a writer, I aspire to:
When we read a good story, we are compelled to read on in order to find out what's really going on; when we do find out we are amazed, delighted, surprised … and we retain a solid belief in what we have discovered. A good story takes us along for the ride, and doesn't dump us at the roadside.
