Why I’m Changing My Social Media Plans For 2017

The Mountain

As I reach the end of the year, I find myself in the envious position that nearly everything I set out to do this year has been done.  I’m naturally feeling very pleased with myself, especially given how ambitious those targets were.  I now get to spend December relaxing (i.e. getting bored) working out my [...]

Year of Hard Work – October Report

So here we are, into the last couple of months of the year and approaching the end of my year of hard work.  I certainly don’t think I underestimated how hard this year would be, but I could never have guessed what a rollercoaster it would be.  And it’s not even over yet. […]

It Lives – The Long Awaited Blog Update

On my ToDo list are about 15 different blog posts to make.  So many that's it's not even funny. So why the radio silence for the last month? It's mostly due to the rewrites.  After falling behind in August and feeling slightly overwhelmed, I knuckled down in September and started trying to get things back [...]

I Now Have An (Exceptional) Agent

So I realise that I’ve been very quiet since coming back from storm chasing. Those who have somehow missed the “worst kept secret of 2015” have asked me if I’ve “stopped the writing thing”.  No, the reason I’ve been quiet is because a LOT has been happening behind the scenes these past couple of months. I’m happy [...]
