Really, people complain at the slightest thing these days.

If someone invited ME to a literary festival with swearing, alcohol, burgers and plenty of elbow-room, I’d be absolutely delighted, and would support the whole idea enthusiastically rather than whining like a plague-ridden mongrel.

I have known rejection – in that, Bernard Shaw and I are alike – but again I tell you, I have taken not a penny of the public purse. MY potential grants are all busy employing nurses and lollipop ladies – I can look myself in the face, AND I can tell a comma from a handsaw (when the wind is southerly).

    • I am, say the vengeful Gods of Twitter, too fond of the sound of my own voice. I am now compiling an exhaustive list of authors, sorry, I mean other authors on Twitter in order to complain bitterly about electronic injustice (although it is the future, mind you). In a fit of understandably gloomy rage, I had also not bothered to read my own blog.
