Hey, humans I like!
It has been a rather manic year and I'm going away for the next fortnight to recharge (I am a robot) and finish my novel (!!! hopefully).
I'll be without internet during this time, and I'm not quite organised enough to schedule blog posts or manufacture a clone to answer email in my absence, so if you send me an email or say hi on Twitter or Facebook or Goodreads or Flickr or any of the other 1000 websites I am on, I'll respond to you sometime after December 17.
You're wonderful and I hope 2013 has been good to you so far and you have similar plans to disappear somewhere for a while (somewhere without wi-fi, preferably) and relax.
(I can never figure out how to end a blog post.)
