This is what happens: I start a project and then get slammed with life, blink, and it’s a month or two later and the project has fallen by the wayside. Every. Damn. Time.
Since my last post, Fairfax journos went out on strike for a week to protest mass redundancies, we’ve gone back to work and people have started leaving. There are huge numbers going, but at least they got there with voluntary redundancies and didn’t have to go to forced. That’s been rather … distracting.
I’ve also had to deal with some family and health matters. Oh and I had a birthday and celebrated with going out for bowling and karaoke. Among other things, I sang “Black Hole Sun” in tribute to the late, great Chris Cornell of Soundgarden.
On the writing front, I have finished an article for Good Weekend that has been taking up a lot of mental space. There’s been a change in editor in the mean time. The old editor says I did a “marvellous job” so fingers crossed that the new editor likes it too.
I’ve also been doing a lot of reading particularly in young adult fantasy, the genre I’m writing in. I would like to share that with you soon.
