So it might be time to start writing for fun again.
That sounds a bit odd, especially as my role involves editing six magazines and as many websites.
But that has been part of the problem. Spending so much time and expending so many of the little grey cells on my day job has meant I haven’t always felt the need, the compulsion, the inspiration or indeed the desperation to write any more in my free time.
I’ve filled my time with other things, some of it on two wheels and a lot of it with the ever-creative Mrs Groves.
But my typing fingers – mainly the index fingers on both hands – have started to itch lately.
I feel the need to tap, tap, tap, tap, type, type again.
I don’t know what I’ll be writing – there’s no Apprentice on at the moment thank goodness.
But I have been drawing inspiration from various sources, so watch this space.
Oh and I have a new (old) bike, which I love – especially as it only cost £50 from Ebay.
It is about 30 years old
