Monthly roundup – November and December 2014

Created January 1, 2015. Last modified January 1, 2015. 3 comments. Top.

Once again I’ve been somewhat lax, both with my summaries and with this website in general. In my (somewhat poor) defence, I have been flat out at work in the lead up to the end of the year. I love the organisation I’m working for at the moment, and my new role gives me the chance to work with some fantastic people. But it is busy. Very, very busy.

Monthly Roundup – October 2014

Created November 2, 2014. Last modified November 2, 2014. 2 comments. Top.

Another month flashes past. October 2014 went by very quickly, people. On the writing front, I’ve been typing up the first 20,000 words of a space opera I started writing longhand earlier in the year. I’ve also been thinking through the editing process for Unaligned, the manuscript I typed “the end” for not that long ago.

Monthly Round Up – August and September 2014

Created September 28, 2014. Last modified September 28, 2014. 2 comments. Top.

Two months for the price of one – I got to mid September and realised that I hadn’t written an August round up, and by the time I had written it up it was almost time for the September version.
