The reason for my lack of productivity is easy – the World Cup. I’ve managed to get a decent amount of writing done despite the two or three matches a day. What has fallen by the wayside, though, are my social media ‘duties’.
In the last month I’ve managed to get a few things done:
- I’m working on a Celtic-myth based story I’m calling Tribute;
- Morgan’s Isle, a modern slasher, has been through Critters with reviews which are, at best, mixed. That’s fine, it’s not one of my best and confirms what I thought rather than disappoints;
- The Clootie Tree, a modern horror novella, goes through Critters in the middle of the week;
Nor has there been any movement on the three acceptances currently going through the process (Snuff and Dana’s Children, both violent horrors, and Footholder, a historical fantasy). The ‘no news’ bit is fine; the publication process isn’t quick and in some ways I’d be more surprised if I had heard something!
