18. Book Reset: days like these

Father's Day. A nice cycle ride by the Thames for breakfast near Hampton Court. A cycle back though a hot and sticky Bushy Park. A brief stop and then to swimming lessons for the eldest.

What if I were to do all the work, put my heart and soul into it, get something out there (and something far more fixed and permanent than my usual ephemeral ramblings) and then people didn't like it? Even worse, what if it just … Continue reading 10. Book Reset: the fear
