Cat yawningIt is with a heavy dose of hot shame that I admit to neglecting this old website of mine over the past couple of months. Work on my play Love, Wrong Love (but love nonetheless) dominated matters for a time but with the ending of its succesful and borderline-glorious run last week, I can turn my attention to how my lovely stories have been doing out in the Wild World. So what’s been published? What’s been accepted? Is there any other GREAT NEWS? Read on…

DSCF1006 recolourIn which there is some good news, some great news, some poor news, and some secret news.

I am, officially, still on holidays from writing. It is a bizarre feeling. I have voluntarily robbed myself of the primary way I engage with the world. I feel mildly useless, and unsure how I am supposed to be filling these short Winter days. I am a little bit on edge and rather grumpy. Compounding that it is my birthday this week, a time for reflection and oh Christ I’m not dealing with it well. As you can see from the picture, I am back home in The Town. A few days of hiding here and some delicious meals and come January I will be back writing and have some control over the world and All Will Be Well.

So, how have I been getting on this week?

Cheer up, Graham!Week 1 of an exciting new picture-periodical!

On the 19th of November 2012, I finished my 150th short story “There is Nothing Now.” Over the course of thirty-one months I wrote 398,295 words, filled 1,603 pages with prose and got absolutely nowhere towards getting to the ultimate goal of getting a book published and my stories into the hands of the reading public.

I have printed off all 150 stories and have left the lump of useless work sit on my dresser. Not long ago, two or three years perhaps, I would have been content just to have written the work. The fact that I had made something new exist would have been enough. That is simply not the case any more. I need the work to be seen, to be read, to be enjoyed and absorbed. I have only myself to blame that this has not happened. I have not been trying hard enough.

I’ve gotten nowhere. I need to get somewhere.
