About this blog

This is a window into the weird world of Anglicanism, as experienced on a Cathedral Close. Has anything much happened since Trollope's Barchester Chronicles? You will still see the 'canon in residence' hurrying across to choral Evensong, robes flapping, as the late bell chimes. But look carefully and you will notice he is checking the football score on his iPhone as he runs. This is also a writer's blog. It charts the agony and ecstasy of the novelist's life. And it's a fighter's blog. It charts the agony and ecstasy of the judo mat. Well, the agony, anyway.

Next Instalment

A bit of a scramble this week, but Chapter 2 is now ready: http://unseenthingsabove.blogspot.co.uk/

I don't think I've quite adjusted to writing 3000 word extracts rather than 2000.  It may take me a few more weeks to get the timing right.  At the moment I'm spending too long over the first part, lavishing lots of editing and honing on it, then rushing the last third because the deadline is looming.

But if it weren't for the deadline, this thing would not get written.  I'd still be polishing the first paragraph.  Please overlook the errors and enjoy the tale!
