This is just a tiny note to say that there's a reason I'm not being my usual chatty self, and it's called 'edits'.
The editing process is much harder work than most people realise (heck, it's harder than I realised before I started this writing lark) and fiddly and time-consuming to boot. So when I get a set of edits to work through, I pretty much have to abandon everything else, draw the curtains, ignore any distractions, and plod through them as quickly as I can.
This time, it's taken four whole days - and counting. But it'll be worth it in the end, and I'll be back with you when I can.
