I had initially decided not to make any great announcement or statement about this, for fear of being self indulgent, but a number of people have asked over the past few days so I thought it would be easier to let people who care know.
If you've been on the ball you will have noticed there hasn't been a new Scottish Fiction radio show or podcast for the last three weeks, and my blog, Facebook and Twitter accounts have been quiet.
The reasons for this is probably pretty obvious, but I've decided to take a break from Scottish Fiction, both blogging and broadcasting, for the short future. Those who know me personally will know that as well as running this blog and radio show, I attend college, work, and have a young family with another baby due in July. Sometimes the old clichés ring true and there just aren't enough hours in the day.
I do believe however that if you enjoy doing something, you'll make time for it, which is why I'm not closing the door on Scottish Fiction, and fully plan to return to radio and blogging at some point in the near future. After nearly three years of Scottish Fiction, this is an important junction to re-discover the reasons for my involvement, and reassess what aims and purposes the blog and show are.
In the meantime here's a reminder that you can still purchase the Scottish Fiction Sessions compilation which contains 21 tracks performed live for Scottish Fiction and all proceeds raised go towards Pulse Community Radio. Please do consider purchasing and spreading the word.
