Since I’ve been gone…

Is this thing on?

*blows dust off blog*

*coughs uncontrollably*

Yeah, so it’s been a while. W’sup?

Me, I’ve spent the last . . .

*checks date of last post*

*falls out of chair*

*picks self back up*

Three years, huh? Okay, since October 2017 . . .

I wrote only a small handful of short stories. More on that in a sec.

I sold some short stories, and I had some short stories published. Yay!

I finally finished the steampunk fantasy novel I began back in . . .

*checks notes*

*falls out of chair again*

*decides to just stay here on the floor*

2015, huh? Well, there’s a reason it took so long, and that reason is short stories. They are fun and shiny and I kept getting distracted by them. But probably around the same time I fell off the blogging map, I decided to give the novel my full focus so I could actually finish the darn thing. The result: I actually finished the darn thing. Go figure.

Short stories did happen, but as a breather between novel drafts. And more are happening now that I’ve moved on to the oh-so-fun agent querying part of the novel process.

That brings us to the present. November 2020. Which is, um . . .

Yeah, I’m just going to leave it at writerly things for now or else I might lose my desire to resurrect this blog. Please scream inside your hearts.
