Happy New Year

Happy New Year!

This is it, friendos. My PLN today starts with early-morning, last-minute shit only slightly complicated by the fact that my Tumblr has been followed by two porn bots in as many days.

I really should make that 'safety poster' over again but nah. I have packing to do. I gotta pack my technoscrattle, load up the car, and take a long-arse journey to Tullagawoopwoop so I can share time with a friend.

It's probably a good thing I'm taking a breather from my novel. I've been hearing about plans to keep me -gasp- busy.

I wrote today's Instant last night. It'll be out very soon, and then I'm off. Essentially incommunicado for hours at a time.

May your year be better than the last one, and may good news dog your steps.

The new years' resolutions are more or less the same:

  • Keep writing
  • Finish what I started

That's pretty much it. Simple

  • I wrote 180 000+ words for a trilogy

  • I also wrote 160 000+ words for another book in the same amount of time

  • Which means, if I suddenly decide to quit writing my instant stories [Not bloody likely. Relax, folks!] I can write well over 300K in the space of a year

  • I’ve

Happy new year!

Here on the east coast of Australia, it’s been 2012 for five hours and forty-five minutes. So far, it’s all going fine.

I slept through new years’ for the first time since I was a little one and I’m wondering if it’s because I’m old.

Though I was woken up by the sound of the neighbourhood’s illegal fireworks going off, and Chaos’ screaming when it was all over.
