Why Y?

The masses have spoken, and this is what they say to capitalising this capital blog sa a result of the Willis Building - at least externally - being completed.

o = 0
n = 0
d = 1
o = 0
n = 0
k = 0
y = 5
l = 3
i = 4
n = 2
e = 0

So the Y it is.

To all those disappointed voters, here's what you could have won (and to all the winners congratulations on choosing, in my view, the most aesthetically pleasing variant, and to all those losers who voted "I" - for shame, for shame):

lonDon skyline
london skyLine
london skylIne
london skyliNe

Never mind though - Broadgate Tower looks to be nearly finished so there'll be plenty of opportunities for new capitals (and - I salivate! - the chance for me to make a branching diagram!!!)

One final thing which has surprised me, given that I haven't added to the blog for a month, is that I am now the number 1 google result for london skyline! There must be a lot of very disappointed web browsers coming here now. So, if you're one of them, please accept my heartfelt apologies.


Nuff said*.

*Unless you're visually impaired or using a screen reader, in which case I should probably add that I've just writtne 50,000 words in a month and they, very roughly speaking, amount to a novel of some description.

A novel idea

Just a quick post to apologise in advance as there will be silence here for the rest of the month, for I am attempting to write a novel for national novel writing month.

Heres' a link to my novel page if you want to drop by to say hello or leave a few words of encouagement... actually - the nanowrimo site has no facility for doing that, so don't bother.

It's going quite well so far - 12,000 words, and a plot that's getting more and more fun to dream up - so hopefully will mean I persevere til the end of November... so, basically, goodbye for now.
