One year on…

It has been a year since I posted on these pages. How time flies now the years seemingly advance ever quicker as I get equally older. 2012 turned out to be a very difficult year on the whole, but had many moments of joy too. I had several family issues and found myself with very little time to continue the stories I would otherwise have thrown myself into completing. My children, as always, took a great deal of my time, (that I will always give gladly) — but, without going into detail, other dearest family members who live on the other side of the planet endured some terrible personal news and events. The long and short of it is that I didn’t write as often as I otherwise would as I was either emotionally too preoccupied or otherwise engaged in offering whatever limited support I could to some of those I love the most.

Hopefully, this dark period is firmly rooted in the past now. My goal for 2013 is to concentrate on moving several projects to completion and make them available publicly through whatever means are available to me, (once they are polished and to the standard I feel is the best I can achieve.)

I was able to spend some significant time working on “The Crowd” over the past year despite what I have written above, so this story is almost now at a complete first draft stage. It is currently at around 45,000  words, with several scenes needing to be fleshed out and expanded, so it may well end up being a short novel, despite my original intentions for it to be much shorter.

A belated Happy New Year to all.
