Far too much work, and a new novel

You know when you hit a certain point in your studies/work when you really don’t care how it’ll turn out; you just want it to be over and done with so it can go to hell/the rubbish bin/the back of your memories?

Yeah? You know that feeling? Great. So do I. I’ve having it right now.

And it’s not even half way through the semester….*sigh*

In others words I’ve been as busy as I’ve ever been. My gaming and reading time has taken a massive slash and reduced to the bare minimum. All my teachers seem to love giving me the toughest assignments in the sane bloody week. It’s a real turn off.

But when I do have a few spare moments (note: very few) it’s spend reading a little Raymond E Feist, re-playing Silent Hill: Downpour (I never actually finished it the first time; it was too scary), and of course, writing. I’m working on a new novel that’s aimed more at young adults than mature audiences. I’m 20,000 words in so far. I can’t tell you much, but it is sci-fi, and has lots of aliens. And violence. Otherwise I’m silent.

Oh, one more thing: I’ve had two of my short stories published in the local university paper and online. They’ll be available soon.

At this point it’s safe to say I’m a published author. 🙂

Take care everyone!

What I’m watching/reading now

In in between my endless exams, story writing and taking the dog for yet another walk, I’ve been doing one or two things…such as…

Game of Thrones: Season 3

With Season 3 having finished a few months ago I’ve been eager to re-watch some of the episodes, particularly the latter ones. Of course, watching “The Rains of Castamere” with my friends at university and seeing them squeal in shock (hint: I’ve read the books already) gives me some sort of sadist pleasure. I’ll be posting a blog the entire Season later. So moving on..

I’ve been reading these….

Far too much pointless swearing and a little hard to keep up on who you’re actually following in the narrative, but still good so far.

I seriously need to find out why everyone is raving about this. I got my copy signed when I met the guy at Supernova. Not bad, huh?
