Some observations

So Saturday so far has been spent proofreading. Question: how the hell do proofreaders earn a living? It takes hours and hours and hours. Maybe they just do it badly. Next observation: Dr Who. I don't miss it. When Buffy finished I was quite despondent for a week; when The West Wing finished I think I cried. Admittedly those shows were never coming back, and Dr Who will return in a matter of months. But I had got to the point where I approached each Saturday night's episode with dread, wondering what Russell T Davies had done this week to turn anticipation into disappointment. I know, I know. It's only TV. But good TV, like writing, matters. A bit, at least. Back to my manuscript.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
