Welcome to the Sarah Britten Blog

Sarah BrittenWelcome to my blog! The fact that it is up is nothing short of a miracle, since I am something of a virtuoso in the art of procrastination. Also, I was stuck in a lift for over an hour on Friday, drove all the way to Bela-Bela for a writing workshop before I realised I’d left my laptop at home, and my credit card keeps being rejected.

In fact, one of my motivations for wanting a blog is to force myself into accountability. A blog is at least publicly visible, which implies a certain obligation to get something written on a vaguely regular basis. Currently, I have three novels in various stages of undevelopment, and I am working on a companion volume to The Art of the South African Insult, which, all things being equal, will be out by this Christmas.

Wish me luck or, more usefully, self-discipline. I need it.

    Hi Sarah,
    Nice to put a face to a name. If you want to perfect the art of procrastination just let me know. I give free lessons if and when the mood takes me. Normally I just go fishing but I'm on the verge of giving that up as well because I keep on getting bites and that really ruins the outing.
    Take care.
