Hi there bloggies – happy Monday – the first Monday in December. Where the hell has this year gone?!? I can’t believe there’s now only 28 days left until the end of the year and only 22 days left until the big ho ho! This also means that it’s only a mere 16 days until my birthday… I know there’s two ways to look at this:
1: Grateful to have made it this far.
2: If every year I have survived was a rung on a ladder damn don’t look down!
So this last week…. well I would like to say I have actually done something. But I can’t. Well I have, I published my November Blog Battle story The Extinction Protocol which i have to say is a strong contender for a new serial.
It’s actually quite interesting this story becasue when I examine it in close detail there’s a load of threads I can bring into their own story from this. It’s actually quite frightening what I can do with it and the multitude of directions I can go. So watch this space…
One thing I’ve been mentioning over the last couple of weeks is the new Gutenberg editor, how many of you have tried it now? I’m getting there with it but it’s not fluid and one thing it can’t seem to do is copy posts. If anyone knows how to copy a post (because it’s useful for starting many posts off like the Weekly Orbit) then I would love to know.
BUT this does mean I need to write apost on what I’ve found so far. If you’re lucky I could squeeze that out this week.
On a more personal note I’ve been thinking that perhaps this blog has become less personal, more about things and much less about me this stuff being moved a bit to Simon’s Blog but I don’t know. This blogging lark is hard sometimes and often I just don’t know what to do even though I’ve only been doing this five years now on and off. It still eludes me… Any experts out there?
Lastly I’ve been looking up different options about this merch thing and I’m kind of lost – any advice out there?
Anyways, let me know what you’ve been up to and keep writing and smiling.
