Yeah, it’s been a while, I know. I’ve not really had much worth posting since the New Year, but I have been keeping busy. Continue reading Just An Aside
We’re rapidly approaching the end of another year, so it’s time for me to throw another bunch of words at the internet concerning what’s happened in the last twelve months and what I have planned for the next twelve months.
This last week or so has been a surprisingly good time for me. As mentioned in my last post I attended the Sheffield Sci-Fi and Fantasy Writers’ Group’s ‘Write A Book In A Day’ event, and that led to me remembering just where it was I left my mojo. On top of that, I received my swag from yet another Kickstarter yesterday; this time around it was the second bunch of ‘Heroines in Comfortable Shoes’ from Oathsworn Miniatures. And to top it all off I found out a few days ago that one of my friends has become a daddy, so all in all this little kitty has been in a good place just recently.
So today I spent several hours in a room with a bunch of other writers, talking about the writing process and coming up with various ideas for short stories as part of the Sheffield Sci-Fi and Fantasy Writers Group’s ‘Write a Book in a Day’ event, and you know what? It was actually a whole lot of fun.
I know it’s been a while since I last posted anything on here, but the simple truth is there’s not been all that much to say. Life has been rolling on as usual, and generally speaking not a lot has changed since last time I posted.
Another year is over, and a new one is just beyond the horizon, so I guess that means it’s time for me to write the obligatory New Year post looking back on the last twelve months and looking forward to the next twelve.
When I was first introduced to the wonderful world of wargaming back in the mid-eighties, I found myself immediately at a disadvantage against everyone else in my gaming group. Mainly this was because they’d all been collecting figures and wargaming for a while, whereas I was only just coming into the hobby, so I was basically starting from scratch. However, this did give me one advantage; I already knew which armies every one else would be fielding when I got around to choosing mine.
