It's been a long time, I know. I wanted to keep this blog writing thingy going strong. I wanted it to flow- relentless.... like a river of conciousness, or perhaps, my style- semi-conciousness. One excuse, and a very good excuse is that I've been mega busy... with illustration work, which is brilliant. But the other excuse, and this isn't a good excuse, is that I've been tweeting, yes I have- like a demented budgie. Now, there is your relentless river... Twitter! Twitter is like Tumblr but in a crowded room. I mainly tweet images... I use Twitter as if it is Tumblr... Twumblr, perhaps. Any way this is getting away from the thing... the subject of time, or rather the lack of time to keep this blog flowing. I made a scary decision today, to take a vacation from the big Tweet machine and actually get some bloomin' work done and perhaps write the odd blog post. Is this odd enough? So as of tonight, all the way over, across the vast seas of time until 20th of September, I shan't even sneak a peek at Twitter. It'll give my mouse wheeling finger a well deserved rest. I'm lovin' the Tweetage but it does become a bit of a time sucking addiction. Addiction, yes, I'm feeling the pull! Get thee behind me TweetDeck!
The randomly placed words above are my effort at writing a blog post about nothing. End of :)
I shall of course be tweeting this.
So here goes, my first post. I'm not actually typing this, I am using my graphic tablet to write- my 'Tablet PC input panel'. I'm not sure that this is any faster than typing. It's definitely much more stressful.
I'm back on the keyboard. Gosh, another wonderful way to waste time... 'Personal handwriting recognition'. You can train your computer to recognise your handwriting... whooo hoo! I once spent several days training my computer to recognise my voice, so I could dictate into a microphone instead of using the fast, practical, amazing invention that is a keyboard. The poor old PC never really wanted to get to know me... it might have been all the blurry thumping swearing that went on. If only I could get back all those wasted hours. I like my keyboard. It's small and neat and cordless... its keys don't rattle. It does exactly what I want it to do. Lovely Keyboard... sorry I flirted with Tablet's writing abilities... I promise I'll never forsake you. You're the only one for me!
A warm hello to whoever is reading this. Welcome to Petra's blog. I'm an illustrator of children's books. And I enjoy living in North Wales with my wonderful partner and fellow adventurer, Iain. I have kept and killed numerous blogs and websites over the years, joined several social sites and then left again, sometimes within a day. I am totally wayward in my web-ish ways. And here I am again blogging random stuff. Will I keep it going for more than a month? Do I care? No! Would anybody ultimately care? Definitely not!. But anyway here goes....
