When I started doing this I promised myself I wouldn’t go more than 2 weeks without posting something (barring going on holiday or the like).
Well, maybe I was a little hasty in that.
I have been very slack as of late as I plough my way through my latest attempt at a novel (now nearing its end, and the reason why I’m here – I know how it’s going to end, I just have to get the characters into the pipes to kill the mother of all monsters and yet still have the cats fighting well… let’s call it temporary writer’s stasis and leave it at that). But, really, there’s been very little to report.
I haven’t been sent any links I feel worth sharing in a while.
I haven’t had any more acceptances (this time of the year I have come to realise is when everything slows down, normally until February some time), and there hasn’t been any more anthologies released as of yet. I was going to go on some sort of a rant about the appalling grammar I see more and more of online, or maybe on the fact that Australia’s new federal government thinks of education as something for the “upper classes” only.
But what’s the point? That’s not what people read this for (if the emails I get are any indication). So this is just a brief missive to say that I am still alive and writing, and I hope that in the next week or so the first draft of the next novel will be completed, ready to be put away until such a time as I have forgotten all about it and decide to actually edit it properly.
To my American friends, hope you had a good Thanksgiving; to everyone else, hope you are enjoying your holiday seasons as the year winds down.
And keep on writing.
