Hi there bloggies!

How are you guys all doing? If you’re reading this rather than just clicking the like button then this is a good thing. Welcome to the week 39 of Planet Simon’s weekly orbit. Looking at my WordPress feed it’s easy to see one thing – Autumn is here and with it the usual muses about golden leaves, blackberries and the return of cold nights and rainy days.

I think there’s different ways to look at this, I was thinking that this is the ending of 2018 but also maybe it’s also the start of the beginning of next year. This is nature clearing itself out ready for what’s coming, even though the new year is still some way off.



For some time I’ve been struggling to find time for this beloved blog which I have invested so many hours of time. Despite having built it to where it is and taking the odd break a way forward is still eluding me. I’m also not getting to catch up with many of you as I would like.

I need another break…

But I also feel like some of you are slipping away which is heart breaking as I have so many great friends on here. I’ll be keeping up with you all as much as I can but I can’t be on here as much as I would like. But I’ll still be about.

I have a few things I need to sort out first, my Great Galactic Service Station series need finishing and I have not written a single word for my main story project this year. Dammit.


So… I’ll be about. Trying to work thing out. See you about.

Keep writing and blogging…

What about you guys? What are you up to?

  1. That first sentence gave me a good giggle 😉 And you’re right…nature is making way for a new season of change, life and experiences…and we’re part of that too. Looking forward to hearing your life update Dear Simon…big love!

  2. Hello Simon! I’m glad I checked in with you today… It’s been a bit if a mad summer and I haven’t been catching up with my blog people anywhere near as much as I’d like! Hope you find a way forward with your blogging and other projects – I always think this time of year is much better for “resolutions” than January. In the meantime I’ll enjoy your beautiful autumn vistas 😊

    1. I know how you feel, I’ve had a bit of a mad summer too, rather than things getting easier they’ve got harder.
      I’m going to try and step back a bit and see how things go but I’m not going completely or anything. I have to get some things done still.

      How are you doing? 😀


      1. Glad to hear it! Well, the bit about you not going away completely anyway. 😆 As for me, I’m getting on fine, but it has been a busy couple of months… And from where I’m standing, I can already see Christmas approaching! Eeeek!
