March seems to be a bad blog-writing month for me. In March 2011 I only wrote three blog posts - somewhat disappointing after my much more productive February. Now, in March 2012, I have so far written only one blog post - once more rather crap in comparison to the, yep you guessed it, much more productive February.
I would like to blame something like seasonal change or bad planet alignments or something equally nonsensical for this lack-of-blogness but I doubt there's actually any reason for it. It isn't like I've been so manically busy that I haven't had time. I'm sure I could have found a few minutes at some point this month when I wasn't swearing furiously at malfunctioning lovefilm DVDs (that activity seeming to have taken up a good portion of March).
On the writing front I do have some things to report. I managed to produce a chunk of my fantasy trilogy for my brother's birthday, which I enjoyed writing even if I'm fairly sure a lot of it is just waffly nonsense. I also spent much of this weekend working on my submission and synopsis for the Good Housekeeping competition. So my lack of blogging thankfully does not equal a complete lack of writing.
I also read Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, the second in the Hunger Games trilogy. I've yet to decide whether to review that one because I'm not sure I can without having to spoil book one and I'd hate to do that to anyone who wants to read it. And they should. I seem to have accidentally persuaded a few people to read it so I figured I might as well encourage people on purpose now.
Here's hoping that I'll be able to write a couple more posts this month, regardless of whether they're just my general rantings or reviews. I'm also hoping that the month trend isn't an actual thing - I only wrote one measly post for the whole of April 2011. Ouch.
