I’m not very good at New Year’s Eve but I do try to spend some time thinking through my hopes and plans for the forthcoming year. I don’t come up with resolutions but I do have ideas about what I do want and don’t want to have happen… sounds vague, and it is. This year I’m going to spend more time on my own creative projects - writing - and less time on administration. I’ve got a couple of immediate deadlines to meet. Here’s a little list of what I’ll be working on over the next few months:
- the final final draft of my new novel, ‘The Mistress of Nothing’, which is due on Thursday
- the final final draft of a short story called ‘Public Image Ltd’, which is due yesterday
- a new draft of my children’s book, ‘Daisy’, due end of the month
- five story hotspots for ‘Flight Paths’ which I meant to do before Christmas
Chris and I are hoping to get a big commission for a series of multimedia stories which will require lots of work over the forthcoming year; we will know whether or not that’s going ahead by the end of the month.
I’m in discussion with a software artist called James Coupe about a new project for an LED installation in Seattle; that would be fun.
There is more stuff, but this list is making me start to panic about everything I need to get done!
Any my colleague Sue Thomas is off to California for four months. We shall miss her!
