Goodbye 2013

leave a comment »

Hi everyone, sorry for the silence. I had planned to have the first of three new short stories written and up here by now, but…y’know…Christmas.

2013 was quite a shit year for me, and pretty much the only thing I can say with pride is that I finished a 140k first draft of a novel (referred to as Frills and Slaughter on my twitter) and am now 35k into the fourth draft of another one (Monster Book, aka That Thing I Wrote). I’m also proud of many of the smaller pieces that I wrote for this blog and for the Leeds Savages – though their schedule got a little spottier later in the year, as I focused on my PhD proposal and my longer pieces. (And discovered tumblr.) I’m glad to see this year go, since 2014 brings a lot more promise, both for my “real world” career and my future as a writer.

Thank you so much to everyone who follows this blog, though it’s one out of similar millions on the net. Thank you for following, liking, and commenting. It helps to keep me going when the demons are at hand 🙂

Thank you for reading and here’s to a great 2014!
