Hey there. It’s been a little while since I’ve posted anything here, however I’ve not stopped writing. Here’s a quick update and then over the next few weeks.
WHERE HAVE I BEEN?
Still writing, mainly. I’ve also taken up basketball. Yeah, I’m surprised at that one too.
WHY HAVEN’T I BEEN UPDATING FAKED TALES
My lovely netbook, The Netronomicon, is dying. It’s sad but it’s been this way for a couple of years now. I spend more time watching frozen screens while anything tries to load. The internet is the worst part of any interaction with my lovely writing machine, so that means I’ve been bulk-updating things when I can rather than actually going online regularly for this sort of thing.
I am doing something about this though. In August I’ll be getting a new netbook to replace this one. It mainly needs to run: Scrivener, something I can spreadsheet on, DropBox, maybe VLC player and it needs to be able to survive offline as I write everywhere. If anyone has suggestions of places to look for one, please mention them in the comments.
OPERATION LIGHTNING 2015
This is still on. I’m almost done with the penultimate chapter of the novel and already starting to look at the way of digitally distributing serialised fiction. I’ll be writing articles about the project here alongside creating supplemental material, proofing, editing and rewriting anything I need to do from Lightning itself.
I’ve still been doing this too. One of the first things I’ll start putting up are links to my games journalism. Sorry about that non-game people, but it and my comics are some of the more regular things I’m easily able to publish and show to people.
I may already be planning my NaNoWriMo for this year. It’s not related to Lightning mainly so that I can have a break from the cast. I also have two more manuscript ideas which I’ve noted down for once I’m done with the Lightning project. I also have… plans for this NaNoWriMo. Oh yes, plans.
I’M ON THE YOUTUBE!
As part of my games journalism fun there was a suggestion of doing something on YouTube for D+Pad Magazine. Fred Black and I have been posting videos to the D+Pad channel on a weekly basis and we’ve been proving our own lack of ability at games, despite making a lot of words about them. You can find the channel here.
Oh, and soon I shall explain my hatred of owls.
