It’s been a tumultuous last few weeks. We’ve been moving house, then the computer with all my website data on it died and it took longer than expected to be ready again, and then we’ve been dealing with all the fun of the new school year for the kids. At times, it seemed like anything that was outside of the immediate hassle of getting through the day was going to be not worth the effort.
It’s all coming slowly back to normal, even if there are more moving boxes left than I remember. Valentine’s Day is also rapidly coming upon us, so there’s more things that need attention in the immediate term, and it’s important to make sure that they take my full attention. There are plans to keep pressing ahead with writing and editing work, and I want to get a couple of shorter stories out, just to keep things ticking over. I’m probably going to focus more on releasing a longer work this year, but it’s still important to keep the shorter stories going. At least with the computer all back alive again I’ve got all my drafts and stories back. Yes, I had full backups, but it’s not the same as having the originals back.
