This is going to be a quick post, but I wanted to say that I started a creative writing blog with my friend The Politick. We're writing a story together, switching off every few paragraphs. Let me say now that I have absolutely no idea where the story is going to go (that's part of the fun). The new blog is called The Bookbird and the Word Girl. We just started writing the story yesterday, so you should scroll down to part 1 (by The Politick) before you read part 2 (by me). New posts will be coming every day, so keep checking back!
