I don't want to paraphrase Arnie...
« on: February 02, 2020, 08:35:29 PM »
But I'm back.

What a bastard that 2019 was huh? I had made a solemn vow to get a book released, and thus get back into things. That failed to eventuate. Lots of other things did though, unfortunately. You don't need to hear about all the gory details here, but it wasn't a fun year. At all. Somehow it was as though 2018, smirking and smug and vindictive, stood back at the end of it's turn with a sly grin, laughing with malicious fervor at what it had wrought. And 2019 looked over and said "hold my beer."

But that's the past. And I just last week started writing on a new project, one I think will work out well. I needed something fresh, rather than trying to restart things on a half finished project. You know how that can be right? A nice fresh project with no baggage attached.

And part of getting my writer brain fired up again will be returning to this wonderful place. So prepare to see me annoying you in threads all over the forum!

Cheers.

Knowing my luck, I wouldn't be at all surprised.  :icon_cry:

To start with, I actually thought the current pandemic was some sort of bird flu and wondered why it had been named after crows.  :shrug

In the UK, Corona was (not sure it's still extant) a soft drinks company. I originally thought the virus was called Corvid-19 - and crows are of the family Corvidae, along with rooks, jays etc.

Someone listening to an Aussie talking about Coronavirus could be forgiven for thinking it was named after crows - we tend to run words together and flatten or delete vowels, so it does sound like we're saying, CROWna-virus.
