As a blogger I'm dead in the water, an empty sack, an I can't even be bothered to find any more metaphors.My ink has run dry I'm a blogging (not so Supa) Nova that has burned a trail of blindingly brilliant mediocrity across the sky then gone PHUT! Like a damp firework. So I'm shutting up shop till the will to go on resurges.Could be minutes or years.
But before the blinds are pulled I have a special visitor to The Castle, writer Nuala Ní Chonchúir, will be coming over to answer 3 questions in honour of her poetry collection 'Portrait of the Artist with a Red Car' on Jan 29th.
It's a great book , searingly honest, jolting and beautiful and funny and sensual. Some people have a way with words, Nuala has -it-away with words !? A great writer of short stories she was an Irish Times Person To Watch in 2009, so we watched and she didn't disappoint with(among many things) these poems and her fabulous short story collection 'nude'
Her latest success is having her first novel published.It's called 'You' and is set in 1980's Dublin.I'm really looking forward to reading it.
Despite being a successfull writer Nuala took time to be the first to follow my blog and to offer advice and encouragement, so she's a nice person too, which is cool.
