2018 continues trundling towards its end. The penultimate month is almost done. How did I spend it?
Well, I’m too English to celebrate Thanksgiving, but I have to say: when I see all the Americans on my Twitter feed offer thanks for the good things in their lives, I find the feeling infectious. 2018 has given me a lot to be thankful for. My short story debut is next month. I’ve finished the manuscript for a book, which’ll be out next year. A couple of awesome projects came my way over the past few months, and I’m looking forward to the day I can announce them publicly. And to top things off, I finally got to spend time with an old friend – my oldest friend, in fact – who I haven’t been able to hang out with for seven years.
Okay, things haven’t been perfect. The demise of Belladonna magazine was sad, and I’ve had to delay the crowdfunding campaign for Midnight Widows – the comic I’m writing, which I was planning to launch this year – until next spring. But for me, the positives have been outweighing the negatives.
