I'm Not Dead (honest!)

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 8, 2013, 12:49 PM
Hello there ladies and gentlemen, I figured it was time I gave you all an update or two.

First off, I have some very exciting news: I have been published! I had the great honour of being featured in the college creative writing magazine, only a few pages away from an interview with the fantasy writer Mark Lawrence! If you for some reason doubt my integrity, here's some proof for you:

The Jam Magazine by kathofalltrades Jam Magazine 2 by kathofalltrades

I shall plead guilty to not submitting that work onto deviantArt, but I shall do it shortly as soon as I've finished sorting through the string of short poems and prose I wrote before Christmas. My only defence is that many of the things I wrote at that time have a very weird mood to them (and I'm a bit of a fail at beat poetry XD).

However, even more excitingly, I'm going to be published in that magazine again this month. Specifically it's my short story "Four Sinners" that's going to be appearing, so there's hope that I'll become famous campus-wide =).

Finally, I'd like to apologise for my lack of activity in general recently. University (as I expected) has spent the last 5 months snowing me under with work. While I have managed to keep writing, it only just gets squeezed in every so often (which is why you've had a lot of shorter works recently). I have been trying to keep going at the re-write of DOT, but I had to take a break from it last term when I ended up getting so frustrated I nearly deleted the whole lot in a moment of desperation. Either way, I'm starting to look at that again and am setting myself the target of having it finished by next September.

Either way, I'll take some time this weekend to submit some of last term's works for you to enjoy :w00t:.

Plain turn-up jeans,
I may not conform,
But I'm still a slave to the machine.
