I have often felt the need to write without the guise of a character, as myself. A young man in his twenties, with two degrees (pending). Perhaps one of the reasons that I have not done this is that so much of myself goes into ABristolNovella anyway, the two are the same - or were.

However I'm starting to feel we are drifting apart, and as my time in Bristol draws to an end, and I begin to slowly withdraw from my Bristolian life, there are so many things I want to document, which I feel like I can no longer do whilst I'm (pretending to be) a preppy stuck up twat. So many things that I want to record, for myself, and what has happened in the four years since I moved here.

And this is something that might not take off, maybe just writing this is enough for me to tell you, I'm not a total dick head.

I don't know that any of us thought that you were. ABN was always somewhat oblique, that's what made it interesting. As for me, you know my feeling regarding having the chance to appreciate your work w/o knowing what you looked like.

Now help me fix the goddamn cover, because it obviously isn't working! There I said it. In public. You were right, I was wrong... so were the pundits.

You're not and you're actually cute not to mention have a great deal of intelligence. Showing a photo of yourself and revealing more of the mystery that is you keep us coming back.

So, what adventures have you in mind, where do you want to take us (and yourself)?

The imagery of the words you expressed after the photo are awesome. Hope all is well! I'm looking forward to your next post with anticipation! - V

Aww... it's good to meet you.

People find other people interesting, so in that respect blogs about real people are the very best kind. But it's not for everyone - I certainly have difficulty in revealing much of myself, for various reasons.

Whatever direction you take, I'll watch with interest, and chip in with the odd comment.
