As is now traditional for this date: May the fourth be with you.
I’ve realised I haven’t done a catch-up post for a while, so here’s the latest since my last diary post.
My visit to Humber SFF #3 seemed to go well – aside from my usual Hull car parking adventures that meant I was slightly late getting to the library. I think I was forgiven and I certainly enjoyed myself.
But that was over three weeks ago and I’ve been kind of quiet on the web-site since. Excepting that May 1st was Blogging Against Disablism Day 2017 (#BADD2017) [External Link] and, having skipped a post last year, I managed to put together a post on time management (oh the irony) called ‘Becoming a girl who CAN say “no”‘. I recommend going through to the proper BADD2017 page and catching up with all the blog posts.
The on-site ChapterCon event page has gone through a bit more of a tweak. As well as my own pre-order form, I’ve put links to a few other authors who are attempting to be efficient with luggage space on their travels. I’ve also posted links to their home pages, so please go and find out more about some awesome authors.
Having completed the first draft of a second Greenwood-y project, and run through the basic redrafting the first Greenwood-y project, it turns out the next / current WP first draft is going to be… you guessed it, another Greenwood-y novella. So my faux-medieval fantasy jag continues. If I remember, I think I’ll do a post with the “first page” of each of them so you can see what I mean about attempting to create folk tales that feel like they have been around for hundreds of years. I’ve previously posted opening draft paragraphs on Facebook, so I guess it’s only fair that the rest of you get to see the current state – although still not necessarily the final version if they make it into print. I shall have to work out how to include my footnotes…
