Intermission

intermission

As mentioned in my previous post, I’m taking a break from blogging at the start of 2017. This is partly because there are some courses I’d like to do (and beyond my job I only seem to be able to concentrate on one thing at a time) – the courses are self-paced and involve subjects that are completely new to me, so I’m not sure how long they will take to complete.

But I’ve also lost interest in writing about films. I’ve just written about the personal and political ups and downs of the past year – and I have no doubt that those things have impacted on my general mood – but during 2016 I also packed away (or binned) a lot of research materials, notes, magazines and books relating to my older research interests because I felt that I had definitely come to the end of something in that regard. I need to put the blog to one side for a while in order to think about / do other things and reorient myself.

Setting a time scale only ever creates a rod for my own back, but it’s unlikely that I’ll be back on here before the summer. As I also mentioned in my end of year round-up, I will be reducing the amount of time I spend on Twitter, but I’m not intending to leave the platform altogether (I am also contactable via the details in the sidebar). Hasta luego…
