    Wow, thank you everyone! (And those of you who commented under duress, your bouncy cheques are in the mail!)

    Seriously though, if only you knew how irritatingly verbose I am in person you’d be shocked. So being published on here, where brevity has been turned into the finest art – is a complete honour.

    Thank you so much, everyone! Believe me, I’ve written more than my fair share of duds in the past, but your lovely and incredibly kind comments are definitely encouraging me to keep going.

    In fact, I might even work up the guts to submit another one!
