Yes, I'm still alive.
In case you were wondering.
In reality, I've been somewhat tied up with other events these past nine months or so. We sold the house in the summer - one of the hardest things we've done and yet also one of the best. We were stagnating, marking time, not wanting to leave our beautiful custom-renovated cottage. Now we have downsized and it's not been easy, but we are through the worst of it, I think, and ready to move on. And I don't miss the view - I really don't.
We also bought a small flat in the village, which has doubled as a large storage container so far, but is another project we have on the go. Not sure what we'll do with it once it's finished - rent it, maybe? Or sell it. Or sell this house and move into it? Who knows?
In the meantime, writing has taken a backseat. But I did a writers' fair last Saturday. And of course it's FantasyCon later this month which is always good for kick-starting the creative side of my brain. And I've just agreed to do a radio slot next week, for which I need to find some appropriate music.
So in the spirit of music-for-writing, here's a link to a post I wrote years back which deserves another airing in anticipation: The Undercover Soundtrack.
