Hey y’all! I’m sorry I’ve been pretty quiet this last month or two – it’s been pretty busy on this end. I thought I’d throw a quick update out for you guys so you know I’m still here and have an idea of what’s coming up over the next few months.
Life has been pretty shit recently – and what I mean is that I’ve just had no time! I like to relax on an evening; do some writing, blogging and gaming etc but things have just been out of control and while it’s fun for a little while, it annoys me after a while, hence why life is shit right now.
I’ve been working hard looking for publishers and agents for my novella, A City in Grey – if you’ve been following my series on The Road to Getting Published, you’ll know a bit about it and I’ll have a few more posts on that coming soon. I haven’t had great successes yet but I’m still trying – I won’t give up. I’m also getting ready to get back to redrafting my novel and I want to have the next draft ready by the end of summer so that’ll keep me busy.
I’m half way through the third book of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series and I’ll be blogging about those soon as well.
I’ve been to a few gigs and shows so far this year and I’ve got more lined up, including a weekend at Silverstone for the F1 in July. I’m also looking for a new job, so as you can tell, I’m a busy bee right now. Like I said, it’ll all settle down soon, I hope.
For now, life is busy – very busy – but it’s not stopping me!
You all know I do love a good writing competition, and I have one for you! It’s called The Novella Award and asks you to submit a novella (who’d have guessed it?). The deadline is on Friday 5th June so not a lot of time left to enter and if you haven’t written one yet then you’ll probably miss it this year – but there’s always next time.
If you have a novella ready – or close to it – then get to work right now so you can submit it. It’s a great opportunity and not one you should miss out on.
I’ve got blog posts planned to make up for my absence over the last six weeks or so and hopefully things will settle down soon and I can get back into a stable routine – but if not, I’ll make sure not to abandon you again.
See you soon!
