This is our truth, tell us yours
Jem and I have always known that part of our wonderful partnership is this conversation that masquerades as a blog.
We’ve been able, via this blog, and its predecesor, to fashion a blog that is, I hope, knowing, informed and a contribution to a debate about the future of the left, of LGBTQI politics and about, in my case, ideas around leadership and organizational cultures.
I’m taking a step back for a month.
I started out, along time ago, as a really bad performance poet. I imagine myself, sometimes, as an essayist, or a commentator. The divide between that, and a blogger, is quite narrow.
Sometimes this blog is hard work for me, because, as an anonymous blogger, I have to move away from topics that might disclose more than I’m willing to give away about who I am.
For the next month, I’m going to work on the structure of a novel, an historical crime novel. I hope that novel will give me some more space to talk about the world I see than this blog does.
It means I will blog less. I want to give myself the chance to write differently. I’ll be back in December.
If you’d like to guest blog here, on topics similar to ours, email me.
