What have I been up to?
Some of my readers will notice that I haven’t been hubbing for a couple of weeks. I do post short comments at the Hubbers’ Hang-out to show signs of life, though. The reason is not an acute on chronic writer’s block, but a little detour to experiment with blogging. I responded to Lissie’s call to start a blog at Today.com and had been experimenting with short pieces relating to a general theme. That general theme is “Hong Kong”. The pieces there are 100 to 200 words in length. This has been a good experiment for someone who can’t find much time to write regularly. So sometimes I finish these small pieces in 20 minutes or before my wife protests that I’ve been spending hours at the computer, whichever comes first. These short pieces are lacking in depth. They are, however, still educational for me to write, in that I have to try to outline the story, color it with my own ideas, and then quickly make my point and close. Here you’d find some of my short pieces: (If you happen to drop by, do tell me what you think.)
Please be reassured (or disappointed) that you haven’t seen the last of me yet.
