Since it has been a month since I last posted anything personal, I thought I should probably blow the dust off here.
While the day before Imbolc was warm and promised of Spring, the weather didn't stay that way for long. It was snowing on the hills again today and the maximum temperature never quite made it into double (Celsius) digits.
When I last checked in, Wyrd Games had invited me to write a story for their monthly magazine. It was easy to determine this was a kind of audition to see whether my fiction suits them, since my work on their RPG manual had apparently been solid enough. I'd found writing for the latter project to be rather stressful (editing to deadlines is so much easier than writing to them) and had needed some time to recover. So I emailed them to see if it was the sort of thing I could take them up on later down the track. As I suspected, it was. So I'll be checking in with them in mid-October, once I'm through the birthday whirlwind of September and the local sci-fi convention in early October.
Despite the fact that I haven't had any work from Wyrd over the last month, I have had jobs from a few smaller clients which have been enough to keep me busy and reasonably satisfied. Plus, there's always the EGE blog to look after.
And life hasn't been all work, even if it has been mostly. There have also been baby showers, weddings, illnesses and deaths (none of which were mine, fortunately). There has been tea, chocolate, books and cuddles with cold doggies.
And now I'm heading off for more of the last few. Hopefully, I'll be able to carve out more time to check in here again soon.
