2016: A Cyberspace Odyssey

*Yes – I know: nobody uses the term cyberspace anymore*

Happy New Year! Well, day six of it anyway.

But then perhaps it’s fitting that a blog post the central tenet of which is going to be that I have not only failed to do half the things I said I was going to last year, but that I’ve also not been blogging anything like as much as I should is in fact itself late.

Yes – let’s go with that and say it’s intentional, shall we…

So here we are: 2016 already. I’m not going to lie, kind of caught me by surprise this one. What about you?

As you may recall, I had big plans for 2015 back in January, including the publication of a novella in October. Well, October came and went… the novella, not so much. It is still in the works though and a new, very tentative date of October 2017 (yes, ’17, that’s not a typo) has been set to a) give me enough time to finish the darn thing, and b) fit with my publisher’s schedule of fiction releases. So that’s nice.

Also, I know I owe you yet another apology for failing to blog half as much as I intended to last year. In my defense – I did write what for me constitutes a rather long post about Sid Meier’s Civilization back in May, and a semi political ramble about Britain and the EU in June. Although now that I come to think about it, that’s not really a very good defense. So let’s just stick with I’m sorry and will try to do better in 2016 🙂

Expect a veritable cyberspace odyssey comprised of more posts about writing and links to writing (mine and other people’s), as well as some more random stuff like the above. Some of it might even be vaguely interesting… no promises though.

In the meantime, know that I wish you all the very best for 2016. Carry on being nice to one another and make sure to pick up a copy of Vestigial Tales (sorry – I couldn’t resist!).

TTFN Internets!
