Not much changes in 70 years does it?
I was going to save this until the Orwell Prize results were out but I can’t see much point waiting.
The last 13 months or so of blogging have been a lot of fun. It is still fun but I have now written down everything that I think is worth me writing. In some areas I am conscious that I am starting to repeat myself. If I keep on going I believe that I will end up spending the next year or so attack blogging the government rather than blogging about policing. I don’t want to be all about that. There are plenty of other people doing that better already.
Now as far as I know, I haven’t been outed at work and nobody has asked me to wind my neck in. This is just how I feel about the blog and it is a feeling that has been growing for a while. It’s time for me to do something else with my writing.
I don’t know if blogging changes anything. I do know that I am just a short lever in this world but it was worth a go on the off chance that there were people reading that could deploy longer levers. I’m probably going to write a book now. It won’t be another searing expose from the trenches, it will be a work of fiction. I don’t have a book deal, never wanted one. If you want to read a book on how it is buy Gadget, Bloggs or Copperfield.
Thanks for reading.
This blog will not self destruct in about a month or so. People have asked so I’ve left it up with comments locked down. Last word went to Big Fat Trucker. Take care all.
The e-mail still works. Keep in touch.
