So for those who followed me from Posterous, maybe go and make a coffee. For the new comers, welcome.
The story I have been writing in short bursts is now on this blog, so feel free to go and read it from the beginning (although to be honest you could probably jump in anywhere and not feel completely lost).
Basically I am doing this to keep my writing muscles in shape. Every year in November I have taken part in NanoWrimo and then I spend the rest of the year recovering.

It is all first draft, spelling mistakes and all. I have no grand overall plan, no ultimate goal and no idea if it will ever reach a conclusion.
