Yes, I've been lazy

I haven't died or disappeared; not yet anyway! I've just been very busy with other things and writing has not been a priority.

The novel is arriving in October because I am publishing it is the USA, so it'll be out there before it gets here. You'll be able to get it in print or download it for Kindle or any other reader from Amazon, etc. I'll put a link on the page for you when it's ready. So far the reviews have been good, so I'm encouraged.

I was sent this link to an episode of Trauma that I appeared in about 7 years ago; it was my first one-under and my first job with the HEMS team. It's worth watching because you won't get many TV opportunities to see a resus taking place on a tube station platform. See if you can spot my youthful self in there. I can't believe how time rolls on, honestly. Thanks for sending me that Suzi, it's been years since I last watched!

I'm also shoving my music up into the public domain. I've decided I don't care one way or the other if it's not liked because it was so long ago anyway and there's nothing worse than having created stuff and then allow it to die without an airing! I started by re-releasing a Christmas single I had out back in the 1980's; 'Father Christmas' it's called, ironically. It's on iTunes, so have a listen and if you like it, buy it and make it a retrospective worldwide hit :-) You can search for it with the keywords father christmas mister e, which is my singer/songwriter/muso pseudonym. I'll be releasing a lot more music over the next year or two... that way, when I die, it'll all have been loved or slagged off... but at least heard.

I'll be back to normal blogging soon, I promise. Just got to get all these other projects out of the way first!

Good to see you back!

I remember seeing that episode on tv, good to see it again, now knowing you were part of the team!

Good to hear from you again Stuart. Looking forward to hearing your music. I tried to find it when you mentioned it in a previous post but google was singularly unhelpful!

I agree with your attitude about creative output. There's no point letting it fester with the eternal curiosity about it's public reception.

Looking forward to hearing and reading more in the future.


p.s. have recently started blogging and added you to my reading list, hope you don't mind.

Have just skip-watched that"Trauma" programme. Only one comment from me - Multi agency - multi skills - and no one got in each other's way or started arguing. As it should be - mutual trust and understanding.

Gosh, I vividly remember this episode 10 or so years later! What were the chances that you were the paramedic?! Harry

Thanks - and no, I don't mind a link at all!

Glad to see you're back, Xf!

Fiz said...

That was traumatic just to watch! I don't know how you do it, Stuart, but I thank God that you do.

Ian said...

Didn't recognise you, but did hear someone shout Stuart at one point so that's close enough!
