This is an example of an About page. Possibly not the most outstanding archetype of an About page that you’ll ever see, but nonetheless an example of the breed and one which hopefully conveys some of the Aboutness of the blog.
Much of Dispatches is similar to the above, taking a standard idea and then trying to disassemble it apart and put it back together, sometimes in a rather silly way.
Primarily, this blog is about me, writing my novel (slowly and painfully) and making totally explicit the choices, compromises and literary schematics that went into those choices. If you’ve not been here before, my first post may help make sense of what comes afterwards. It may not, of course, but that’s hardly your fault.
I’m in my late thirties, have grey hair and a perpetually worried expression. Everything else is subject to change without notice.
