Brand New Me


Not where I was, but definitely where I wish I had been!

Hey – I’m back! Miss me?

Much has happened since I last posted, most notably, I have decided to once more wing my way across the ocean back to England, where there is public transport, a living wage, and a slightly less openly ridiculous government.

There is also far more opportunity for travel, which is reason number one for going.

In order to achieve this goal, it was necessary to move back in with my sister so I could save money. This has both pros and cons, and I may possibly post on it some day. The biggest pro is that I can spend my last few months in the country with my favouritest people: my nieces. Also, despite big bitey dogs, my cat seems to have settled in better in one month in the new house than he ever did in the year and a half that I spent at my lovely little flat, so leaving him with the family will be much less of a worry.

I’ve also embraced my inner geek more than ever before (see my previous post) with the help of a wonderful group of equally geeky girls led by the inimitable Helga Pearson.

Towards the end of last year I was also unable to post due to having all my writing brain occupied by crafting submissions for the Nova Science Fiction Fantasy Short Story Competition. Although I didn’t win, apparently one of my stories is highly recommended – so go me! Both the stories I submitted are available to read here.

So, that’s me. What’s happening with you?
