Young(ish), free and most definitely single. (Thank you for your time and effort, but no thank you.) Live south UK and work evening shifts, something which plays havoc with my writing.

Update · 9:35am May 8th, 2018

Hi there.

First off, apologies for the long wait for an update. Ever since I got promoted I have had to do a lot more 'adulting'. Just about got a handle on it and the 'imposter syndrome' was starting to fade when they go a promote me again! (Seriously? What the heck are 'upstairs' smoking... and can I have some?)

Next chapter now at editor's · 11:39am Oct 9th, 2017

Next chapter, Deterrent (part 2), has now been passed to my editor. Or perhaps 'unleashed upon' would be a better terminology.

Yes, I agree it has been a (too) long time.

I claim NO major crisis or drama in my life to account for it. Just life itself ticking-over, inexorably dragging me, kicking-and-screaming, towards being a responsible, mature, grown-up adult.

...whimpering sounds...

Anyway. The story is NOT dead!

It is moving towards its conclusion.

Next Chapter soon. · 10:06am May 7th, 2017

The next chapter, Deterrent - Part 1, has now been submitted to my editor... for the second time. He (quite rightly) pointed out something the first time, something that was basically 'well that's all a little too convenient', so off I went to sort that out.

Still Alive · 12:59pm Dec 18th, 2016

Just thought I’d drop a quick blog to state that: No I’m not dead... and neither is this story.

The next chapter is coming along, just more slowly than I hoped, but it is coming together.

No major drama going on here, it’s just xmas, mum is down with us right now and the longer working hours mean less free time during the working week.

Chapter will be published Monday · 8:10am Oct 9th, 2016

I haven't heard back from my editor yet, which is highly unusual. Normally a day or two, three at most.

While I am hesitant to release the chapter with proper editing, I will publish it Monday. Keeping everyone waiting any longer than that is just getting/has already got silly.

So, I will go through it one more time myself looking for errors.

Annnnnnd given my track record on this sorta thing I'd just like to say: *Gulp*

Next Chapter · 6:10pm Oct 2nd, 2016

'Chapter 47- The Frozen Sun' is now off to my pre-reader and editor.

And on a minor note, it's been a couple of months since I went over to night-shift and it still feels like I have to make an effort to stay in the proper sleep pattern. I had a week off recently and thought: 'yippee, I can go to bed early...'

A moment's silence for my youth if you please.

Right. I've mostly gotten used to night shift now. Learning new stuff... and learning the 'correct' ways to do old things :twilightoops:

Been ups, and a few downs, being charge of people and a machine - seriously, at times beating my head against a brick wall would have been:
(a) more productive
(b) slightly more fun

Next Chapter - Change of work pattern delay. · 9:49am Aug 18th, 2016

The next chapters is on its way, unfortunately, there have been a couple of lifestyle changes which I am currently working through.

First off, I've gone onto night shift - longer hours per night, but three day weekends. (My body clock is still adjusting)

Drat · 8:45am Aug 3rd, 2016

Drat... or words to that general effect.

Turned on PC this morning and after an amusing little puff of smoke, accompanied by the house circuit breakers tripping out, my PC officially died on me.

Probably just the PSU but it is - 'quite annoying'.

Anyway, got the laptop right now so hopefully it shouldn't have too much effect on my writing. (Definitely prefer the G15 keyboard to the laptops for typing though.)
