I’m not sure I want to acknowledge how inconsistent my posting is… Its been a few months since I crash and burned in NaNoWriMo… I’d like to say I have a good excuse…
It’s not all doom and absence though. I have been writing and editing. Slowly and in bits. Sadly it’s not on the novel. I have used the life events to work on a new short (long) story, which is now 90% complete.
This weekend I will start editing the novel and filling in the few gaps that remain.
I’m also looking at what conventions and festivals to attend this year. I want to get more involved in the UK writing community. Last year I went to Alt Fiction which was fantastic (very educational) and Harrogate Crime Festival (which was not so educational – But I got to meet Ben Aaronovitch (squee)!).
Any suggestions? What cons / festivals are gonna be good this year?
