Happy New Year, everyone! New Year seems to be the time for big decisions and this one is something I've been deliberating over for quite a while.
For the time being I am going to put The Fairy Tale Cupboard into hibernation. The eagle-eyed may have noticed I haven't been posting very regularly recently. I've found it harder and harder to justify posting and keeping the listings up-to-date when I could be spending the tiny scraps of time I get to myself actually writing stories, which is what I most want to do. Also, I am passionate about fairy tales, but I'm passionate about the other types of fiction I read, write and edit too, and there have often been things I've wanted to post about that didn't really fit here. So, over the last couple of months I have been cautiously (and secretly) posting over at a new blog called Gathering Scraps. This one will mention fairy tales from time to time and it will gather together lots of other bits and bobs too. And, rather than allowing it to distract me from writing, I'm going to try to post more about what has been inspiring me and feeding into my work.
Thank you for reading, for linking to The Fairy Tale Cupboard and for all your kind and insightful comments. It has been a pleasure getting to know people through writing this blog.
I hope the year ahead brings you lots of happiness and everything you need.
Very best wishes,
