my friends SIAN CUMMINS and SOCRATES ADAMS-FLOROU have both recently set up sites to promote their novels. i encourage you to click on their names and look at their novel websites.

i bought a new coat. feel 98% comfortable in it. pretty much a 'perfect' coat. only very mild occasional moments of 'where do my hands go, i don't want to spoil the 'line' of the coat by putting one of my hands in my pockets, what do you do, do you just let your arms dangle at your sides and sort of swing on their own?'

i am involved in THIS PROJECT WHICH IS CALLED ONE HUNDRED DAYS TO MAKE ME A BETTER PERSON. it is a project set up by Josie Long. i like Josie Long a lot. Josie Long likes Richard Yates a lot. hooray. there are lots of people doing it, including Emma Lannie and some 'famous' people. i am sort of being a 'superhero' for a hundred days, sort of. i am just walking around where i live and then going home and writing about it. in March i think i am going to be 'presenting my findings' at an event in London. i am hoping to do a kind of simultaneous talk/video thing, with graphs, etc.
