2013 Came In Like a Wrecking Ball
Holy crap what happened to 2013! There I was working hard to complete the rough draft of Buried in Angst and BAM! 2013 came in like a wrecking ball and my creative energies are suddenly focused on cheap, er, thoughtful Christmas presents. (Someone tell my why it’s a faux pas to give pictures of yourself every year? I even sign them, and my parents just roll their eyes.)
It’s been an amazing year! I completed and released Buried in Angst, and some people don’t hate it! Cristi became my official spokesmodel and totally rocked it! We went to a lot of amazing conventions! Angst made it into the Amazon top 100 Fantasy Books for a weekend. Yeah, a few things got accomplished and I feel pretty good about the year. Now, let’s do it again, this time with feeling!
Bigger and better
2014 has all the signs of bigger, better, more! I’m deep, deep into Drowning in Angst (more than 5 pages, I promise). The main story is mostly written, but I’m taking my time to mold the various plotlines so they remain big without weighing themselves down. Most important, I’m having a lot of fun with the story and I hope you will too!
More cons please
Cristi has agreed to hang with me for another year as we revisit some of the cons we went to last year and branch out to new ones. Our schedule starts at Visioncon in Branson, MO the weekend of February 28th! I should also have a new costume ready for her as long as she, and my lovely, thoughtful, and forgiving wife approve.
Thanks to everyone for a fantastic year! (Oh, and regarding the ‘Wrecking Ball’ title, I was going to follow up my I Don’t Hate Twilight post with a Why I Don’t Hate Miley Cyrus post, but my wife said no.)
