Welcome to Advent! I’m finally willing to admit that Christmas is on the way and have started singing along with the overdone festive songs in the shops.
And with the preparation for Christmas and the New Year, comes the preparation for a new job. I’ll be finishing at Netherhall School [External Link] at the end of term (Wednesday 19th December + plus a few non-term time days) and start as an Environmental Officer for the Waste Recycling Group [External Link] on Monday 7th January. It’ll be a full time job, so I’ll also be giving up my work at the CBDN [External Link] and will probably have to cut back on my writing. But don’t breathe a sigh of relief, because I don’t intend to give up completely!
Talking of writing, I’ve submitted The Big, Bad Wolf to the Drollerie Press Little Red Riding Hood Anthology [External Link], and the first draft of my Nemonymous Eight: Cone Zero [External Link] effort has been finished and is currently being tested on a number of lab-rats. Actually friends and family – it would be too cruel to force it on actual animals and the animals are more likely to eat it than read it, anyway. Finally, The Girl From Yesterday is in the first issue of the Ranfurly Review [External Link], so go read it!
PS I subscribed to the Murky Depths [External Link] on Thursday. My order for the “back issues” and my subscription arrived on Friday. And it is breathtaking!
