Hello, fellow writers. I’m back! As some of you may know from my last post, I was on holiday last week, hence my lack of posting. I had a great and relaxing time. One of my favourite ways to relax is sitting on the beach, staring into the ocean, and I did plenty of that. We camped just ten minutes away from the coast, which was ideal! We visited Portsmouth, where we saw some awesome ships (The HMS Victory and Warrior) from atop the Spinnaker tower, which was a great experience. This was actually an accomplishment for me, considering the severity of my anxiety at the moment, but I did it, and I’m happy that I did. We visited some woods, in which I did my best impression of a monkey and attempted to climb every tree in sight.
I was slightly worried about coming back to reality after my short time away, but now I’m back, I’m okay. I have a lot to sort out before Christmas, but in my new relaxed state, I feel that I can accomplish what I need to. There’s something magical about staring out into the vast unknown that we call the ocean. It’s like an infinite space of endless possibilities. I guess, as a writer, I can take something from that. We ourselves are capable of the infinite. There is no end to the characters, worlds and scenarios that we can create.
While I’m rambling, I just wanted to say thank you for the kind response that I had to my last post. It has given me the courage to share more about myself. I had always wanted this to be a place where, not only could I share my fiction, but also share about the person behind the fiction. Of course, that does not mean there will be any less fiction, just more about me.
I have two bits of awesome fiction news for you:
- It’s nearly Halloween! Not only is this one of my favourite times of the year, but it’s also time for my three days of horror. I have three pieces of fiction coming to you, three days in a row!
- I have finished the first draft of my The Hunter novella! I’m currently getting it prepared to send to my trusted beta readers. When it gets returned to me, depending on feedback, I will decide on the editing steps. With a bit of luck, it should be coming very soon.
Thank you all for reading. I will return Friday with another post. Stay awesome.
