Why nine tales?

One of the first questions that gets asked when people see the name of the site is ‘why nine tales?’

And I thought I had an answer when I started this blog – it seems kinda selfish to start *yet another* blog all about the facets of me that no one sees, but I think one of the most important things that I’ve been learning lately is that there’s a running joke that I’m bipolar, so only have two sides – creative and technical; because I write and I code, I’m seen as part anachronism, part regular joe, but I learned to my cost last year that I’m far more complex than I’ve given myself credit for.

So Kai-o-9-tales is a bit of a play on words, a bit of a joke, and a bit of a showcase.  I hope you enjoy it here – but I’ll be talking everything from writing to publishing, to parenting, to everything else.  And while it’s true that I have other blogs that I do all that stuff on, I’m hoping to cross post selectively, and maintain an overall presence while splitting off into a niche where I can.

Welcome along for the ride!

Just a quick one this week, as I have had a positive LFT for covid this morning. Lft 2 pink lines #covidtest #UK What this means in all practical terms is I'm more grateful than ever for my vaccines and, in part due to something my partner said this week, I've pitched...

A 2022 plan in the making… #mondayblogs #backlist #kailarks #rungirlrun

So I did my retrospective. And I don't do resolutions, mostly because if I did, I'd get into even more trouble than I'm in already. But, I do sorta, do plans for the year ahead.I've split them into personal and professional, then split appropriately from there. That...
