After a long stint hammering out first-rate articles and second-rate headlines I am in need of a pause, dear readers.
As you may have noticed I have been rather quiet of late, concerned mostly with fridge magnets, vacation and vermouth. It has been gratifying to see continued signs of life and active discussion carrying on in my absence. It is time to offer a few words about my future contributions to DTW.
I’ve been working at this for five years and in the recent months have realised I find less and less of a drive to produce regular articles. Some of the material since January 2019 has not lived up to my standards (such as they are) and rather than just carry on bashing out 500 words plus a few pictures, I would like to begin an indeterminate hiatus.
That lets you all know that I won’t be writing for the foreseeable future but allows me the luxury of occasionally penning something that needs to be penned if I feel so moved.
In the meantime, I hope Eóin, Simon. A Kearne and DTW’s pool of contributors can see fit to carry on the good work of fighting banality and bad shutlines.
