You may have noticed that there wasn’t a post yesterday. I’m afraid there won’t be one tomorrow either, nor for quite a lot of the days to come. Not having a post from me will, I’m afraid, be the norm for most days as of now.
What I mean is that I can no longer keep this up as a daily blog. This is because I have run out of old articles from other places to re-upload, at least for the time being. This site exists partially as a portfolio for my previous work, and, for now, that portfolio is up to date. So I won’t be able to keep uploading posts daily.
But that doesn’t mean I’m going away. For one thing, I’m still writing – right now I’ve got about half a dozen articles in progress for various outlets – and those articles will be uploaded here a few weeks after their initial publication, just like all the others. If you want to read my articles as they go out, your best bet is probably to follow me on Twitter, @Will_S_7, where I will be tweeting about them as and when they go online.
On top of that, I’m planning more original content for this blog – my previous posts on Glitch Rain and Guided by the Beauty of Their Weapons have been some of the most popular things I’ve written, and I’m planning on doing both more reviews and more original blog content. I’ve got a review of Seanan McGuire’s new novella Every Heart a Doorway coming out on Thursday, and I’ll hopefully have more reviews like that in future.
If you would like me to review your book or play, you can email me at williamshawwriter at gmail (or click the word ‘Contact’ above). I cannot guarantee anything, but if it looks interesting I’ll consider it for review. If I accept, that review will generally go out within three weeks of receiving a review copy of a book, or the following day for a play. I’m particularly interested in reviewing short fiction, novellas and poetry, so if you have something which you think would interest readers of this blog, by all means drop me a line.
And finally, there’s one more thing I have to say before I sign off: thank you. Thank you to everyone who has read, liked and followed the blog over these last three months, and I hope you will continue to do so in the future. It’s a cliche for a blogger to thank their readers, but you are the reason I do this, and I hope you will continue to enjoy the blog in future. If you like what I do here, it would mean the world to me if you could share it, and let other people know it exists – that is how sites like mine grow.
Above all, thank you for your time. I promise to never deliberately waste it.
