November News

November News

I should probably stop calling myself a blogger, shouldn’t I? Maybe I should opt for a more truthful title: “bookworm and writer who occasionally posts updates on their blog, roughly once a month”. It’s like… once it’s been a couple of weeks, it’s hard to know what’s worth breaking your silence for, and so it just stretches on and on. Also, it’s been busy! I’ve got a bunch of news to share with you, which I’ll do in roughly chronological…

Pain, Pitch Wars, and the Unemployment Void

Pain, Pitch Wars, and the Unemployment Void

Yikes. I’d just got back on the blogging wagon, and then I fell off it again. I’m sorry for my extended silence. I haven’t been doing brilliantly the last few weeks — I’ve had some bad pain flare-ups, along with the migraines I’ve been suffering for the last couple of months, and am barely finding time to do anything. Where I do have any time, I’m tending to use it to work on Bard, which means I’ve been reading very…

Bard and Bookstagram

Bard and Bookstagram

It’s been a while since I did a more newsie-type blog post — I’ve been all about the Thinking(TM) recently. But I figured I’d keep you all updated on a couple of things that are going on right now. Firstly, I’m rewriting Bard. For those who aren’t aware, Bard is an Arthurian-inspiried SF novel I wrote in early 2016, posting the first draft chapter-by-chapter on Wattpad. It’s set on a distant planet that was one of Earth’s prison colonies, until…

Depression, Writing, and 2016

Depression, Writing, and 2016

One thing that’s been noticeable about 2016 is that I haven’t been blogging very much. I made a brief attempt in the middle of the year to change that, but it didn’t last long, and since then a weekly post has been about all I can manage (if that). Although I’ve managed to keep my book blog more consistent, that’s only been possible because I schedule a lot of posts in advance. To be honest, I’ve been writing less in…

Plot Dominoes, Falling

Plot Dominoes, Falling

For a while now, I’ve been writing a novel called Bard and posting it, chapter by chapter, on Wattpad. This is a terrifying experience for me, as it’s about five years since I lasted posted anything vaguely novel-length on the internet (some of my Protagonize stories might have edged over 50k, but none of them were nearing 100k the way this is), and in all that time, I don’t think I’ve ever posted something as totally unedited as this, of…

Disconnected Updates

There’s a reason I don’t stick to a schedule on this blog. It’s not necessarily a lack of discipline — I do my best to stick to a Mon-Weds-Fri review schedule on my book blog and it’s reading the books in time that’s the hard part, not remembering to post, because I can always schedule things in advance. It’s just that sometimes there’s nothing to say. Enter me, this morning: Me, this morning: I should probably blog. It’s been a…

Bloody Matchmaking (And Some Better News)

Bloody Matchmaking (And Some Better News)

There are some people in this world who insist on matchmaking. As soon as you’re distracted, or otherwise out of the way, they’re introducing you to their friends — or worse, introducing your friends to their friends, until you find yourself confused as to how, exactly, they met, let alone went off without you. I have a friend like that. Their name is Gravity. I don’t know how long Gravity planned this particular operation, but the moment I stepped out…

For the first time in a while, I have a new writing project. Okay, perhaps that’s not the most accurate way of describing it. I’ve got another project on the go, known to my Twitter and Tumblr followers as #secretthing, but that’s something a bit different. I’ve also been writing poetry, blog posts, and book reviews in varying quantities for the last few months. Every now and again, when I have ideas, I write random scenes for Death & Fairies…
