A short introduction is probably in order. My name is Dave Parrack (christened David but only my mum now calls me by what I regard as my Sunday name). I’m a 34-year-old freelance writer resident in Manchester, England. Originally from Surrey, I have been up in the north of England for seven years.
I have a bit of a presence on the Web thanks to my blogging, and you can find links to all of my writing gigs plus many of my social networking accounts at http://about.me/parrack
Why the personal blog, and why now? I hear you not ask. I thought it was about time I started something more personal than my paid-for writing avenues. I had one many years ago, well before blogging was fashionable or anything approaching mainstream. But that fell into a state of disrepair when I started writing professionally. Four and a half years on and I feel an urgent need for a place to vent on whatever subject I feel passionate about. And those subjects are many and varied.
Twitter is fine for a one-line commentary accompanying a link, but sometimes the urge to write a longer piece is overwhelming. And Tumblr is the place I have deemed worthy of my time and effort.
This could get messy. Or it could end up as nothing more than pictures of cats being cute. Probably more the latter, if I’m completely honest.
