Wow. I must apologize as I’ve been away from this website for a really long time. However, I have been really busy with things that were really exciting.
For the most part, my time during the past 6 months has been focused on running for Ottawa City Council. Despite long odds, no money and few volunteers, we managed to put together an excellent showing in Capital Ward. Despite all of the long hours, I found that the experience was really worth it as I met some amazing people, campaigned on issues I cared about and worked hard to represent a community that has become my home. I’m not sure that I would ever do it again but it was well worth the experience!
Following the campaign, I was hoping to participate in National Novel Writing Month but I found that I was simply too exhausted. I have for the most part been working on my next project, The Canvasser, a comedy screenplay which I hope to film on a micro-budget next year. I’m also working on a couple of other screenplays (tis the season of screenplays), namely I, Virus and an unnamed project over the long term while trying to find time to edit my 2012 NaNoWriMo project, Other than I, and my children’s book, Ballad of the Four Princesses, into novella format. Over the next couple of months, I also need to update my website so that it’s less like a blog and more of a bookstore. I wish that I had more hours in the day.
Next year will be a big one for me as I hope to finally focus on the promotional aspect of my writing career and go ahead and starting making and meeting new fans. It’s going to be an exciting year and I hope that I will be able to keep all of your updated.
I don’t think I’ve ever had as much fun writing as I have recently so I’ll see if I can keep up the momentum into 2015. Thanks again for all of your support.
